Review: The Necessities of Life/Ce qu’il faut pour vivre 9*/10

It’s a tale of hopelessness, terror, confusion and desperation, and Ungalaaq makes you feel all of that. The Necessities of Life has done well on the festival circuit and was Canada’s entry for Best Foreign Language Film Oscar this year, although it didn’t make the final cut to be in the running Sunday.

Language barriers are no problem with sub-titles, but even without them I think the film would still work just in how Ungalaaq manages to get so much across with expression and pitch. Éveline Gélinas as a sympathetic nurse is also very good, as the relationship between her and Tivii shows that common language is not an impediment to either friendship or understanding. I also liked Denis Bernard in a small role as a sympathetic priest that tries to help Tivii adapt an orphaned Inuit that’s also a patient in the hospice; some genuine laughs are mined out of their visit to the monsignor.

This proves that things aren’t all black and white in the story. The actions of the government are not driven by I think some imperialist mentality, but by the notion that they were genuinely doing all right by the Inuit by taking them far from home and treating them in spite of everything. Their self-deluded altruism may have blinded them to certain facts on the ground, but Necessities isn’t a story about the right-or-wrong of government policy. It’s the story of one man’s struggle to get some semblance of control of his situation, and whether or not he can maintain a sense of self so far from home. It’s a simply powerful story that works its magic in small and unexpected ways.

At times filled with humor and warmth and at others feeling compounded by isolation and a hint of claustrophobia, Necessities of Life reaches out from the past and across cultures to remind us how fragile we are in a number of equally important ways. Is one’s health worth a trip hundreds of miles away from home and being thrown into the deep end of some strange culture? It’s a tough question, and while I think I know my answer, it’s up to the audience to make up there own minds as to whether Tivii’s journey made him the worse for ware, or worn for the better

In examining what constitutes the necessities of life, Pilon presents a variety of options – communication, belonging, acceptance and family. But chief among them is dignity.

Seen at the Palm Springs International Film Festival.

The Necessities Of Canadian Cinema
And believe me,we need good more good quality films from Canada (and thankfully,I’m pleased to report that this film is said such film). ‘Ce qu’il faut pour vivre’,or as it is being distributed in English speaking countries as ‘The Necessities Of Life’ is taken from true accounts of an outbreak of tuberculosis in Canada,as well as North America,from just after the end of World War 2 (1946),until the mid,to late 1950’s. In this case,the story centers on Tivii,an Inuit hunter & family man (played by Natar Ungalaaq,star of ‘Atanarjuat:The Fast Runner’),who had contracted TB,and had to be detained in Quebec, in the south of Canada,for rest cure. While there,he experiences isolation and loneliness. When he tries to escape & walk the distance back home (without success),he resigns himself to just try & get better. During his stay,he befriends a kind hearted nurse,Carole (played by a radiant Eveline Gelinas,star of several films for Canadian television,as well as cinema),and a young 10 year-old Inuit boy,named Kaki (played by first timer,Paul Andre Brasseur),who turns out to be an orphan. Tivii takes a real shine to both the boy,as well as Carole,and the three form a bond of friendship. Film maker,Benoit Pilon,who’s previously directed mainly documentaries for Canadian Television,turns to his first time directing a fictional film (but based on actual events from Canadian history),from a screenplay written by veteran fellow Canadian writer/director, Bernard Emond (The Lady Who Drinks)to create a fine film that can easily touch the heart & warm the human spirit. This was Canada’s entry into the Academy Awards for best foreign language film for 2008 (but obviously got the s**t end of the stick). Spoken in Inuktitut & French with English subtitles. Rated PG by the MPAA,this film serves up a rude word,or two,and the horrors of tuberculosis.
