Synopsis

A little brother asks his big sister how she managed to stop being afraid of the dark.
She draws him into a succession of dreamlike tableaux where everything comes alive and through which the little brother learns to confront his own fears.
Au pays du cancre mou is a contemplative film in which the viewer discovers a magical place through the eyes of the protagonists.

Director’s Statement

The nod to the bush monsters who come back at the very end lets us know fear has been somewhat conquered, but perhaps not entirely. As a child, I hated when a film that had taken us on a magical adventure ended with: “it was all just a dream”, I wanted to believe the magic was indeed real, if only in the world of the film...
