HYBRID A man disappears in the woods: Denis Côté‘s new film is a fascinating, wordless variation on Walden. From the centre to the periphery, away from the city, from the people, from his old life: a man steps outside his life. He wanders the streets till they become paths, always moving on, apparently aimlessly, as the days pass and the story writes itself – until he reaches the loneliness of the forest and bit by bit becomes part of nature. A man without qualities, with a patch on his army jacket the only clue as to his identity: Wilcox.
