La Moitie Gauche Du Frigo Details


A documentary filmmaker and his subject find themselves at odds in this dark comedy from Canada. A mechanical engineer who has lost his job is trying to decide what to do with himself now that he needs to find a job. An actor who is looking to break into filmmaking hears of his predicament and asks to make a film about his life, following him with a camera until he can land a job. Without much else going on in his life, the engineer agrees, and soon the documentarian thinks he's hit pay dirt when the engineer begins romancing a supermarket check-out girl, even seducing her on camera. However, the filmmaker's political agenda is a great deal different than that of the engineer, and when he begins expressing his own controversial opinions while the engineer suffers through failing job interviews, things quickly become tense. La Moitie Gauche Du Frigo was named the Best Debut Canadian Feature at the 2000 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
