Les Lignes Ennemies

The Enemy Lines


Denis Côté


Six men. The forest. The menace is there somewhere. Armed, ready, looking for action, they wander, day and night, striving for a confrontation.


"Masculinity is a terrible thing to waste. That was probably the first impulse surrounding the formation of this film. Then came the idea of war, which is more interesting than war itself. Foreshadowing danger is also much more intriguing than the materialisation of menace itself. Those were the conceptual elements of what became an abstract story of group loneliness and intimacy; a fake war film with endearing toy soldiers wandering and wondering what the next adventure is made or unmade of." — Denis Côté
