Missing Victor Pellerin Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This wry and subtle picture from Quebec filmmaker Sophie Deraspe begins with the purported disappearance of a Montreal-based artist known by the pseudonym of Victor Pellerin. Deraspe informs us that Pellerin vanished without a trace in 1990, after promptly burning every single example of his work. As she makes her way through the local art community, interviewing Pellerin's colleagues, family, friends, and enemies, she gets wildly diverse perspectives on a man who some considered a hero, and others despised for allegedly forging artwork and engaging in other sub-rosa felonies. But is Pellerin real, or merely a fictional construct of Deraspe's picture? The film forces us to draw our own conclusions. As the movie rolls forward, it remains unclear if the mysterious artist will ever surface and agree to appear on camera. ~ Rovi
