Léa Pool's La Femme De L'hôtel and Women's Film in Québec

Quebec Studies (1989), 9, (1), 49–62.

Abstract

Les quatre films de Léa Pool, surtout La Femme de l'hôtel en 1984, font partie d'une tradition récente mais importante de cinéma des femmes au Québec. Bien que Pool n'affiche pas de message féministe, ses films présentent une voix cinématique féminine et créent une vision qui brise les stéréotypes féminins traditionnels. Réalisatrice et scénariste, Pool pratique une subversion des techniques du cinéma dominant en établissant de nouvelles formes de rapports entre ses personnages et la spectatrice.
