From Legendary filmmaker Bruce LaBruce (Hustler WhiteThe Raspberry Reich) comes his latest feature, Saint Narcisse, which tells the story of a young man on a quest to reconnect with a mother he previously thought dead. His journey leads him to the remote woods of Quebec, where a nearby monastery harbors a dark secret from his past. Starring Félix-Antoine Duval as a pair of identical twins separated at birth and who strike up a strange, and in true LaBruce style, provocative relationship. Duval is joined by Tania Kontoyanni, Alexandra Petrachuck, and Andreas Apergis.

Rambunctious, playful, and sexy, Saint Narcisse is a truly exhilarating and scintillating ride. 1970s flare and abject irreverence meet to produce a cheeky, but still resonant coming of age tale with a doppleganger twist. Loaded with religious imagery, sexual tension, and family drama, this film is a welcome addition to LaBruce’s filmography.
