Synopsis by Mark Deming
A woman and her new lover find themselves playing a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an obsessive lunatic in this impressionistic thriller. Juliette (Elina Lowensohn) is struck by a car after running onto a busy road one night; she's picked up and taken to the hospital by Gaspard (Jean-Henri Compere), an ambulance driver who discovers that Juliette was trying to escape Guido (Pascal Greggory), a relentlessly determined would-be suitor who has been stalking her. At the hospital, Juliette goes into a panic, convinced Guido will come after her; her suspicions prove correct, and when Juliette is told she's well enough to return home, Gaspard offers to give her a ride back, partly out of concern for her safety and partly because he's become infatuated with her. While driving Juliette home, Gaspard discovers Guido is following them; after losing the stalker, Gaspard takes her to a hideaway in the country, though Guido's obsession is too strong to prevent him from picking up their trail. Pourquoi Se Marier Le Jour De La Fin Du Monde received its North American premiere at the 2001 Cinequest San Jose Film Festival.
