The Hasty Man Drinks His Tea with a Fork

The Hasty Man Drinks His Tea with a Fork

| 1 h 23 min

A blend of drama and documentary, this film follows several people caught up in the turmoil of the modern world. The drama centres on a woman who has burned out and who holds up her own despair – and her attempts to rebuild her life – as a mirror to the rest of us. With a blend of gravity and humour, Sylvie Groulx's film shows the absurdity of a society dedicated to the cult of speed at all costs.

    Thanks. Over-busyness makes us blind, deaf to life, unable to taste, unable to participate in our own lives.
