Black-Out (1970)
Jean-Louis Roy

Out of paranoid fear of a nuclear catastrophe, an elderly couple isolates themselves from the outside world in their small suburban villa. An apocalyptic retreat told with a pinch of humor that makes one shudder and at the same time smile every now and then. Will the couple find their way out of isolation again? A chef d'oeuvre that already shows the situation of being quarantined in 1970.
