Québec-Montréal

  • A film by Ricardo Trogi
  • Featured-length - 2002
Synopsis

Quebec-Montreal: 250 km (150 miles) of asphalt, nine thirtysomething travelers, four cars, one destination. The journey becomes an opportunity to share points of view about life and to discuss troubling questions about our existence. Highway 20 forms the backdrop for the sometimes hilarious, sometimes complicated situations between three southbound friends who discuss IDEAL love, the QUEST for romance between two ambiguous office colleagues, the appearance of PASSION from a picture perfect couple versus the DAILY-GRIND suffered by another young couple and their impending BREAK-UP. These two hours in transit along the winding thoroughfare of love set a collision course for grating simultaneous reality-checks and deep reflections about where life has taken you and the roads upon which it will take you on in the future.
