Synopsis


The Necktie is a story of Valentin and his compelling quest for the meaning of life. The film skilfully outlines the way this model employee's personality is effaced by futile work in a dead-end job that makes him forget his youthful pastimes. As his birthdays go by, boredom replaces hope and his old aspirations fade. When revolt emerges for a moment, it is quashed by despair.

Jean-François Lévesque


Jean-François Lévesque (1978) has been drawing since he was a boy. Strongly influenced by strip cartoons, he developed a “caricature” style that used to earn him living during the summer at various regional events. At the Carrousel international du film de Rimouski, he took part four times running in André Leduc’s Animathon. After that, he concentrated on animation and studied the subject for two years at Capilano College in Vancouver. In October 2004 he won the 17th Cinéaste recherché(e) competition run by the NFB’s Animation and Youth Studio, and made The Necktie, his first professional film.
