‘Maelstrom’ storms Quebec pic kudos

Film also won best pic at Genie Awards

MONTREAL — Helmer Denis Villeneuve’s “Maelstrom,” a quirky morality fable, swept Quebec’s film awards, the Jutras, last week, winning in all eight categories in which it was nominated.

“Maelstrom,” handled worldwide by Alliance Atlantis, nabbed best picture, director, screenplay (Villeneuve), actress (Marie-Josee Croze) and cinematography (Andre Turpin), among others.

The Jutra sweep is the latest honor for Villeneuve’s sophomore feature. The French-language film won the prize as best Canadian pic at last summer’s Montreal World Film Festival, nabbed the Fipresci Prize at the recent Berlin Intl. Film Festival and dominated last month’s Genie Awards (the Canadian film awards) with five wins, including one for best picture.

Arrow Features recently acquired U.S. rights to “Maelstrom.”
