8. Cafe De Flore (2011)
‘Cafe De Flores’ is a complex and intricate story about reincarnation and relationship between the individual and the society. The film explores the social mores binding open relationships in two periods; 21st century Montreal and 20th century Paris. The film’s core is averse to grandiose preparations and instead relies more on the visceral sexuality and maturity of the story and the performances of its actors. While the film does feel a bit drawn out and ‘out-there’, it still manages to be impactful and resonant with its original motivations of relationships and its complexities.
