Sound On Sight Radio #214: Montreal Hipster Xavier Dolan

- Advertisement -

Not too many of us accomplished much by the tender age of 19, but by then, local writer-directer Xavier Dolan had completed his first full-length feature film, J’ai Tué Ma Mère (aka I Killed My Mother), and saw it premiere at the Direcotrs’ Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival. Not one to sit still for long, apparently, Dolan nimbly completed a followup, this year’s Les Amours Imaginaires, which also screened at Cannes, and made its debut in Montreal theaters last week. We’ll let you know if the kid is a wunderkind or just the beneficiary of the cinematic hype machine.

    I finally listened to this podcast and enjoyed it immensely. His second film is actually getting released in theaters here in Finland in a week and I’m so excited, having heard this massive praise about J’ai Tué Ma Mère. Your show made me go check it out right away (not a rare occurrence, BTW).
