“Though bleak in tone, Kent’s ground-breaking film is uncommonly perceptive concerning the contradictory condition facing the independent woman in a sexist society”– “Front & Centre”, Festival of Festivals, 9th International Film Festival, Toronto
“He (Kent) is considered in some quarters to be a genius, and in others to be merely a maker of smutty movies”– Jack Moore, VANCOUVER PROVINCE, 1966
In this bittersweet story of unrequited love, Young-mi is released from jail after helping her secret flame embezzle money from their employer, and is confronted by his belligerent wife on the way out.
Directed by Larry Kent, a Montreal melodrama in the time of Vietnam, class conflict and student protests, starring Claire Pimparé.
Once banned, now celebrated, Larry Kent’s legendary 1963 debut — and Canada’s first underground feature — is given new life in a miraculous new 4K restoration by Canadian International Pictures.
