Le sourd dans la ville -- Film Description:
"Based on the poetically metaphoric novel by Marie-Claire Blais, Deaf to the City centres on the comings and goings at the Hôtel des Voyageurs, a small rooming house which also acts as a repository for urban despair. [...] It is testimony to the film's worth that is pulls us into a vortex of malaise in order to finally seek the way out. And it finds it—ironically in Mike, the character with the most hope and the least chances for survival."
