RESTORED DIGITAL PRESENTATION!

Actor and filmmaker Micheline Lanctôt won the Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival for her second feature as director, the story of two teenage girls whose close bond, dreams, and sentimental whims are presented in a series of vignettes that move gradually from the seemingly trivial to the extremely dark.

L'actrice Micheline Lanctôt a remporté le Lion d'argent du Festival de Venise avec ce film, qui est son deuxième en tant que réalisatrice. Sonatine raconte l'histoire de deux adolescentes dont la proximité, les rêves et les élans sentimentaux sont dépeints sous forme de vignettes successives qui passent graduellement de la légèreté à l'extrême noirceur.
