This dramatic comedy which will take place under the leadership of Louise Archambault (“It was raining birds”, “Gabrielle”) was imagined and written by Marie Vien, to whom we owe in particular “La Passion d'Augustine” and “14 days 12 nights”, which represented Canada in the race for the Oscar for best foreign language film in 2021.
It tells the story of street chaplain and parish priest Marc Côté, who lives with the poor and homeless. Worn out and exhausted from holding his church, which serves as a refuge, at arm's length, the man is thinking of closing the place.
Like a call from Providence, he inherits a property in Bas-du-Fleuve and decides to take a band of homeless people there with him, who, like him, need a vacation.
Produced by Antonello Cozzolino and Brigitte Léveillé, at Attraction, the film will also count on Martin Dubreuil, Marc-André Leclair, Justin Leyrolles-Bouchard, Cédric Keka Shako, Louise Turcot and Pierre Verville, within its imposing cast.
Océane Kitura Bohémier-Tootoo, Gilbert Sicotte, Normand Chouinard, Geneviève Rochette and Bruce Dinsmore will also play a role.
The filming of the film “Le temps d’unété” should continue until mid-September.
