Bestiaire by Denis Côté( Visual )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A meditation on the relationships between animals and people through the seasons at a Quebec safari park. This work about the act of looking slyly blurs the line between observers and observed. Despite lack of a traditional narrative, there is dramatic tension in each exquisitely framed shot: a cage door under attack from a growling lion; the scurrying striped legs of zebras in a pen; the long stare of a bull, straight into camera

Jean-Paul Colmor es un acumulador de desechos, varias décadas acopiando restos de autos en su cementerio de vehículos de Québec lo conviertieron en un personaje sin cualidades pero con atributos. Y eso es precisamente lo que busca descubrir Denis Coté al establecerse en esa fortaleza disfrazada de osario. Se podría hablar una vez más de cómo se desdibuja la frontera entre el documental y la ficción, sino fuera porque la manera en que el director va perfilando a su personaje tiene menos que ver con una distinción teórica que con un modo de aproximarse a las cosas (que no son en sí mismas ni reales ni ficcionales). Sin presionar los hechos, sin hostigar a su personaje, Coté sabe que todo buen cazador debe saber esperar a que las situaciones ocurran. Pero esa idea de recuperar los restos que la sociedad arrumba, en realidad no hace más que continuar por otros medios (o a través de otras historias, o formatos) aquello que ya había investigado con sus marginales de Les Etats Nordiques y Nos vies privées. Todo buen personaje es la promesa de un retrato que sólo espera ser mirado

"Ta peau si lisse (A Skin So Soft) est un essai documentaire réalisé par Denis Côté, qui pour son dixième long métrage, s’est penché sur l’intimité de six culturistes québécois. Dans une entrevue accordée à Line Boily à l’émission L’heure de pointe Toronto sur Radio-Canada [1], Denis Côté donnait un aperçu de son film dont voici quelques extraits: « J’aime beaucoup approcher des univers que je ne connais pas. Ta peau si lisse n’est pas un film qui fait la promotion du culturisme, c’est un film qui n’est pas là pour nous informer. C’est plutôt une exploration de l’intimité de six culturistes. Il y a un jeu avec le spectateur qui prendra plaisir à regarder le film pour définir ce qui est vrai, ce qui est faux. Je voulais montrer un côté plus vulnérable de ces passionnés. Je les protège beaucoup, je ne ris pas d’eux. Je voulais explorer ça avec une distance respectueuse. Il y a des aspects sombres et ridicules, mais je ne voulais pas aller là. On sort du film après avoir vu des douleurs, des souffrances et de la tristesse. J’ai un peu appuyé sur le côté solitaire. Le film nous fait aussi réfléchir sur nos propres obsessions. Ils ont un idéal de beauté qui les emmène è l’extrême. J’aurais pu faire une analyse psychologique sur ce dépassement de soi, mais on les connaît déjà ces réponses là. »"--[filmsquebec.com]

Two films by Denis Côté = Joy of man's desiring : Bestiaire( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Joy of man's desiring: "An open-ended exploration of the energies and rituals of various workplaces. From one worker to another and one machine to the next; hands, faces, breaks, toil: what kind of absurdist, abstract dialogue can be started between human beings and their need to work? What is the value of the time we spend multiplying and repeating the same motions that ultimately lead to a rest - a state of repose whose quality defies definition."--IMDB
