Life’s a bitch

Trying to fit the entire story of a feature film into just 5-minutes of screen-time is no easy feat, but this is exactly what French-Canadian director François Jaros attempts with his bitter sweet rom-com Life’s a Bitch. Exposing his audience to a barrage of the briefest vignettes, featuring scenes of sobbing, panty-sniffing and overzealous ear cleaning, Jaros and writer/star Guillaume Lambert take their viewers on a roller-coster ride of emotions as their heartbroken protagonist experiences the highs and lows of romance. Shot over twenty days in sixty locations and featuring forty characters, Life’s a Bitch employs somewhat of a bombardment approach with its storytelling, but it’s an approach that works and something the director seems proud of.
