Review

Because of the title, you might expect a story about the pandemic from this film. In fact, not a single scene was filmed indoors, as the movie is set against Canada’s vast and beautiful natural environment, with the natural movement of the sun and fickle clouds as the only lighting source. And the actors are all spaced apart, which is suggestive of social distancing. However, when we look at this film without the strange reality that is dominating our lives today, you’ll be able to see that this is a very original film. Côte has not stopped experimenting with film linguistics through various projects and attempts that were free from genre conventions. In Social Hygiene, he aims for minimalism and poetic narrative with only actors appearing in front of the camera. With this film, he proves once again that he is one of the directors with the most unique voice. (Sung MOON)
