Synopsis by Mark Deming
Two young bohemians try to make a life together as the end of the century looms before them in this thoughtful comedy-drama. Coyote (Mitsou Gelinas) is an impetuous young woman who meets Chomi (Patrick Labbe), a moody young man studying filmmaking. Coyote and Chomi fall in love, bound by their shared fascination with the past and the city's crumbling geography as the end of the 1990s signals the dawn of a new era. Coyote and Chomi's romance is not always harmonious, and the couple find themselves frequently splitting up, only to quickly reunite. However, Coyote begins to look for more stability in their relationship when she discovers that she is pregnant. Coyote was the second feature directed by former cinematographer Richard Ciupka, though his first directorial effort, Curtains, was credited to Jonathan Stryker.
