Fate brings together four people walking in a city. Fanny is a woman who has a passion for taking care of trees in her job at the City of Montreal’s parks department. Engaged in an ongoing struggle to save the city’s public greenery, her efforts bring her into contact with a handful of other desperate characters, including Jospehine (Helene Loiselle), who is single and has given up on ever finding the love she needs; Jean-Luc (Robert Lepage), who has lost both his sight and someone close to him as he tries to express himself through photographs he cannot see; and Carole (Eve Duranceau), whose psyche is beginning to crumble under the pressure of her daily life.
Dans les Villes had its world premiere at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival. Photo and poster courtesy of TVA Films
