"Parlez-nous d'amour" is terribly outdated and it's interesting only to a certain point. There's a strong social commentary about the populace who is so easy to please with stupid mimics and phony love. But while the movie seems to have been done to denounce this, you've got the feeling that it's also using the same scheme to promote itself. Vulgarity is not a problem, but in this movie, it seems everybody is vulgar, everything has a sexual connotation. It's just too much for nothing. Maybe it was a way for Québec cinema to really express itself after the "Grande noirceur". But it's just going from one end of the spectrum to the other. It's not really better. Funny to think that Jacques Boulanger will go on later to host his own talk-show.
