Olivier Godin studied cinema at Collège Ahuntsic and then at Concordia University. In 2014, a retrospective of his work was presented at the Cinémathèque québécoise. His cinematic desire led him to produce, direct and write, in just a few years, five feature films and numerous short films. In spite of small budgets and a lot of tenderness, one finds in these films knives and swords, the occasional gun and saxophones and trumpets. In short, adventure! There are also flowers and birds, gallant banter, sometimes naughty humor and a lot of love for books and songs.
