Adverse Effects (Reacciones adversas)

Mexico/Spanish (74 mins)

Canadian Premiere! Daniel is a young man suffering from low self-esteem, who is incapable of defending himself from the abuses of employers and of society in general. He is medicated with antidepressants to make his monotonous life more bearable; however, far from helping him, the medication worsens his condition - with hallucinations, and psychotic thoughts of vengeance that lead him to a state of total confusion between reality and his imagination.

A terrific, slow-burning dramatic thriller with echoes of Taxi Driver, Memento, and a dash of Fight Club thrown in for good measure, Reacciones adversas is a stunning feature debut for writer/director/editor David Michan. Remember the name – we’ll be hearing a lot more from this talented young filmmaker.
