The Couch Move – A Short Film

The Couch Move – where two idiot friends, with no access to a car or truck, decide it’s a great idea to move a couch by hand, 1.5km across Montreal’s Plateau.

What was meant to be a relatively easy, comic journey becomes increasingly ridiculous as they encounter friends and strangers along the way. Meanwhile, the limits of their friendship are tested as they become increasingly more tired…
