“November” offers a unique socio-geographical glimpse of a metropolis through an almost ethereal lens. The film wanders through the city of Montreal, revealing a heterogeneous human mosaic of life stories and intimate reflections of its residents. The black and white photography perfectly captures the spectrums of autumnal light and gray tones, and the omnipresent soundtrack amplifies the melancholy of a season that, in general, symbolizes our own time.
