Portraits

Certains de mes amis Catherine Martin

Film index A to Z

Seven portraits: seven of the filmmaker’s friends, seven ways of living. They’re just like anyone else: each a little bit exceptional in their own way. Whether they’re artists or not, art has an important place in their world and becomes the thread connecting the portraits. Catherine Martin’s attentive eye reveals these men and women at their most moving. Capturing moments of silence, staring, hesitating, the film gives the viewer all the time needed to discover, meet and appreciate its seven subjects. The director’s sober, patient approach lets their actions and thoughts unfold as they will. An intimate yet universal tribute to creativity, skill, generosity and, of course, friendship.

Presented in collaboration with Ici Radio-Canada
