Jean-Paul Colmor is 74 years old. After an accident early in his life he took a retreat in collecting cars, wrecks and junk, for the last 40 years. Living among tons and tons of debris, he quietly works each day on his unimaginable property, furnishing and dealing car parts to mechanics and other iron afficionados. One day... four intruders visit Colmor in search of a corner of twisted paradise. The old man proves to be a lot more than they expected. Critically acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic, for style and substance, Carcasses uses documentary and fictitious elements in trying to get at the soul of an unthinkable place.

There's kind of an indescribable but a special charm to it.
It's such a laid-back movie. It's almost as if there is no movie- just someone filming the old man and the junkyard, out of boredom. It's easy to miss its beauty.
It's subtle. Subtle movies, quiet movies that are not boring but a case of still waters running deep, are not common. So many movies, especially Hollywood movies, seem to put their trust in noise, fire explosions, car wrecks, gunfights, and other noisy, dominating, violent events, and so the typical viewer becomes acclimated to a high level of craziness and noise of engines, guns, and explosions, that "Carcasses" might just seem lke a boring day on a sort of picnic to a weird junkyard out in the middle of nowhere. And in Canada, too.
But don't dismiss this film- give it a chance. Like the assembly of that Japanese bicycle that Robert M. Pirsig wrote about, this movie "require great peace of mind"... or else things won't go as well.
Probably people will either dismiss "Carcasses" entirely, or love it almost unreservedly..
Conclusion: FIVE STARS. An instant classic, destined for cult status and a reputation which time will only improve..
future, and its reputation will grow as time goes on, because there is just something loveable about it, and it stays with you more than the car
crashes and gasoline fireballs, the gun battles and fistfights, and even more, because it is so across the board in modern cinema, the hatred and resentment between individuals, example after example- creative examples, which somehow makes it worse- of how people hurt each other (or worse) of what I call the typical American movie or TV drama plot.
"Carcasses" is not about that- even though the junkyard could have had some of those exploded or crashed cars in it!- But, I can't tell you what it is about. I'll have to watch it again soon. I think of this movie and smell hot old car metal mixed with the scents of grasses and flowers, and hear the
buzz of summer flies.
