Saints-Martyrs-des-Damnés Reviews:

I saw this movie at the 2005 Toronto International Movie Festival.Saints-Martyrs-des-Damnés is the detail movie directorial debut for Robin Aubert, who also wrote the screenplay. The movie follows tabloid reporter Flavien Juste (played by François Chénier), who goes to a tiny Quebec city with the paper's photographer and his friend, Armand (Patrice Robitaille). Flavien and Armand are there to investigate the mysterious disappearances of some of the villagers over the years. Not long after arriving, Armand disappears himself, setting in motion a entire series of happenings as Flavien tries to search his friend.The city is populated with all sorts of characters, from the mayor who runs the city with an iron grip, backed up by his two greaser thugs right out of the 50's; to the mechanic who wears a mask to hide his face; to the two creepy sisters that run the city hotel; to the girl who plays steel guitar to the cows in the fields; and the lingerie-clad waitress in the restaurant who's Downs-syndrome affected son may be one of the several Flavien can turn to.The film is very reminiscent of work by David Lynch, a la Twin Peaks, but Saints-Martyrs-des-Damnés is significantly clearer in its storyline and themes. At the heart of the movie is the theme of identity, but to tell too much more would give away the plot. The movie has a great look, being shot in hi-def. Aubert's shots create much of the tiny city look threatening and suitably creepy, even in broad daylight. There's probably a several too many startling cuts at the beginning of the film, but thankfully, they give method too a more restrained style for the remainder. I enjoyed the movie, especially the hero of Flavien, as he struggles in his desperate find to penetrate the silence that pervades the tight-knit community.


Flavien Juste (François Chénier) is the reporter of a tabloid that explores UFOs and another supernatural happenings that is near to bankruptcy. His chief and mate assigns him to investigate the disappearance of villagers in Despas and Flavien heads to the tiny city with his mate and photographer Armand (Patrice Robitaille). Flavien sees the ghost of a bride on the street and when they arrive in the hotel, Armand vanishes. Flavien seeks out his mate but the locals do not support him."Saints-Martyrs-des-Damnés" is a ellegant movie with a promising and intriguing beginning that is unfortunately destroyed by a messy screenplay. The writer and director Robin Aubert is visibly influenced by David Lynch, using creepy and bizarre characters and cases with ghosts and an environment of Twilight Territory to disclose the creepy discovery of the reporter. But the resolution of the weird plot does not makes any sense and the conclusion is a finished mess. My vote is four.Title (Brazil): "Cidade Amaldiçoada" ("Cursed City")


I rented this film without any foreknowledge of what to expect. The only reason to take it was that the cover looked kinda stylish. I was mildly disappointed when it appeared to be a ghost story. Luckily, it wasn't just that. It's more of an experimental combination of categories and styles, mixed in a family history with a bloody secret.Its story is cute messy, and therefore I had to watch some of the parts again to totally comprehend it. But I still liked it for what it was: a wacky film with a dark undertone, with talented directors as David Lynch and Terry Graham resonating through the deviant style. I liked the ellegant and heartwarming sequences that touched me with the utter beauty of it. The side-characters are all charming on their own special way. Not all of them had enough time to receive enough depth - mainly due to the messiness of the script - but as a entire they do create this film into something special.
