In the 1970s, when his grandmother died, the young, handsome and narcissistic Dominic found letters that contradict the version that his mother had died in childbirth. His quest follows to find her alive, living deep in the woods with the young and mysterious Irene. Strange and strong links are forged between these three, but Dominic's discoveries do not stop there as he also discovers that he has an identical twin brother, Daniel, a prisoner of a monastery and especially from the claws of a priest who does not want him all good ...

Presented at the 2020 Venice Film Festival, Saint Narcissus is the new feature film by the queer of Torontonians Bruce LaBruce. This project, which the filmmaker had in mind for a good number of years, speaks of the reunion of Siamese brothers separated at birth and who decide in their twenties - in an impulse that is as much mysticism as sexual narcissism - to get back together. A free variation on the myth of Narcissus, the film deals with themes such as the fluidity of identities, masturbation, twincest [incest between twins or twins, note] and the intersection between religious and sexual ecstasy. A provocative, romantic and hopeful work!
