A new trailer has been released for André Turpin’s latest film, “Endorphine,” giving a glimpse into a backwards world where time and reality are never quite as they seem.
The film follows three women, all named Simone. The first Simone is a young girl with PTSD; the second Simone is a woman who confronts her mother’s killer; and the third Simone is a celebrated doctor who can only achieve orgasm in her sleep. As the three Simones learn to cope with their personal traumas, they are led down a hypnotic and confusing rabbit-hole of self-discovery.
Based on the trailer above, the film seems to promise some mind-bending moments of altered reality. At one point, the eldest Simone says, “The external world exists. Perhaps. Perhaps not.”
Sophie Nélisse, Myléne Mackay and Lise Roy star as the three Simones, tied together by an unknown subconscious thread. The film premieres tonight at TIFF.
