Press Quotes

“Marlene Millar and Philip Szporer’s marvelously entertaining multi-disciplinary take on the male mid-life crisis. Mixing solo dance, collective scat, humour and pathos, Victorian gothic animation and great music, this Montreal stage adaptation is never less than fiercely alive.” John Griffin-The Gazette

“Capturing dance performances on film is one of the trickiest things that a filmmaker can do, and here, Millar and Szporer manage it with astonishing intelligence, grace and elegance.” Matthew Hays-The Mirror

“…dancers Marc Béland, Marc Daigle, Benoît Lachambre and Ken Roy share their personal views and perform some astounding, beautifully framed and lit work, punctuated by humour, jazz and chimerical animated drawings” Robyn Fadden-Hour

“Une oeuvre très bien équilibrée à vocation documentaire et artistique.” Fabienne Cabado-Voir

“Le document-film d’art, magnifiquement réalisé par Philip Szporer et Marlène Millar, entrecroise les témoignages parfois très touchants ou drôles sur des sujets toujours essentiels (la peur, les actes manqués ou honteux, le père, le sexe), les courtes scènes de danse, les superbes illustrations parfois animées.” Frédérique Doyon-Le Devoir
