Movie Info

Veteran actors Guylaine Tremblay and Guy Jodoin headline director Bernard Émond's grim tale about a struggling directory assistance operator who takes decisive action after falling into dire straits. Réjeane has just been downsized as a result of corporate restructuring, and this harsh blow couldn't have come at a worse time: her husband Gilles (Jodoin) is currently on the mend from a massive stroke and the couple desperately needs money to pay his medical bills. When Réjeane learns that the president of the company that laid her off is earning $16 million a year, the injustice off seeing so many of her co-workers rendered destitute by the downsizing lights a fuse within her that will not be extinguished. Later, while being questioned in a police interrogation room, the stoic seeker of justice proves unable to summon the words to justify her drastic actions. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi


Critic Reviews for Contre toute esperence

All Critics (1)

Still, the director tracks his characters' descent with an admirable, unblinking gaze; and if only one shot of the film really dives into mystery, it's good that it's the last shot.
