Robert Morin

In 1977 Robert Morin (*1949) founded the video group Coop Vidéo de Montréal. At the end of the 1980s, he turned to feature films. His works are mostly very personal, often dark inside views of family and crime.

Reggie Savoie manages to escape from prison. While the police dragnet tightens around him, he alternates between being ultra-violent and carefree: he threatens and abuses lawyers, hangs out with his girlfriend, consumes huge quantities of coke with his friends and makes funny home videos. The film portrays a criminal’s three days of freedom from eight different perspectives. Each version supplies new information about Reggie and an ever more accurate picture of the mood of his gang, who’d prefer to see their old leader back behind bars sooner rather than later.
