Storyline

In Montréal, Jean-Pierre is fired on the set of a TV commercial where he's an apprentice technician. He's penniless, behind on his rent, with a thin resume and no college units. He has a fiancée, Michelle, but his head is turned by a free-spirited model, from the U.S., who saw him being fired and comes to his flat to apologize. She's Elizabeth, a combination of feckless innocence and sexual freedom. Jean-Pierre borrows money from his outlaw friend, Dock, and buys clothes to impress Elizabeth. Soon he's sleeping with her, and he pulls a theft with Dock to get money to take her to Acapulco. Michelle tries to bring him back to her orbit. Is there a way out for Jean-Pierre?

An interesting film capturing Quebec in 1970 in a stereotypical way.
14 September 2006 | by (Montreal Canada) – See all my reviews

This is not a great film, but it is very interesting historically and sociologically. It is an interesting slice of life 35 years ago during a very unsettling time in Quebec politics when separatism was very popular. Also it takes you back to the sexual revolution of the times, with Quebec questioning the catholic church and accepting the freedom of the times with gusto. The English/French conflict is dealt with in a stereotypical way but still the film reminds me a little of what it was like many years ago and reminds me of how things have changed for the better. For those of us that like Susan Sarandon this is an early work of hers, and probably one film she would like us not to discover! Find out why for yourself by watching!
