— Guy A. Lepage, Tout le monde en parle
Magnified by the performances of Patrick Hivon and Laurence Leboeuf, often filmed in close-up, Mont Foster turns out to be one of the nicest surprises of the season.
— La Presse (translated from French)
A thrilling tale of great finesse…
— Le Devoir
Strange, beautiful, poetically murky, Mont Foster is a real success – current and timeless, and using the filmic codes of space-time to let the characters sink into the quicksands of consciousness.
Patrick Hivon and Laurence Leboeuf excel in this perverse puzzle oscillating between reality, seduction, attraction and rejection.
— KinoCulture Montréal (translated from French)
A beautiful film.
