REVIEWS

« Nut Jobs is not a dreary and defeatist work; on the contrary, it is a work driven by an energy and a joy of creating that is uncommon in the current Quebec cinema.»

- Alexandre Fontaine Rousseau, 24 images

“A strange object [...] bringing a new and refreshing perspective to the landscape of Quebec cinema.“

- Sylvain Lavallée, Panorama-cinéma

                   It coalesces into a rich satirical comedy with a side helping of carefully restrained romance.”

- Jennie Kermode, Eye for film 

Nut Jobs is a lot of fun to watch. [...] All of its seemingly disparate threads weave together nicely as the film hurtles towards its outrageous conclusion. [....] This film is an indie delight.“

- Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, Alliance of Women FIlm Journalists

Nut Jobs is a cuckoo-bananas psychedelic rollercoaster ride. [...] A hilarious satire of politics, media, experimental theatre [...] I highly recommend this film. It’s absurd, in the best possible way.“

- Lori Kirby, Review Nation

«It's playful and psychotronic at the same time, tinged with a comic book aestheticism that offers its share of magical escapes [...] Nut Jobs is a unique object in our cinematography.»

- Martin Gignac, La Presse

«The success of this cinematic UFO is due in large part to its actors and actresses. The duo formed by Jean-Sébastien Courchesne and Sophie Desmarais is particularly strong.»

- François Grondin, Le Petit Septième
