The fish tells the story of a young alcoholic woman's life that begins unraveling at the seams after she flees the scene of the elderly man she hits and kills with her car.
Glued together with a bizarre aquatic theme, the film is unsettling, hypnotizing and nervously funny because it's just so damned weird. Marie-Josée Croze delivers a fantastic performance as what should be an unlikable character but she has an aura about her that makes it all so sympathetic. It's not Villeneuve's strongest film but it doesn't make it any less mesmerizing.
