2010. Canada. Directed by Patrick Demers. Screenplay by Demers, Sophie Cadieux, Maxime Denommée, Benoit Gouin. With Cadieux, Denommée, Gouin. Demers’s first feature is a nail-biting addition to the isolated-cabin-in-the-woods-by-a-lake genre. A young, good-looking couple on the verge of breaking up borrow a relative’s country cottage in order to work out their problems, but when a stranger comes calling—sort of—all attempts at reconciliation take a back seat to the suspense of what will happen next. The closing minutes of this taut psychological thriller are as tense and surprising as they are unnerving. 94. In French; English subtitles min.
