You can hear the director/writer (Pierre Falardeau) shouting «Chicken!»; «Anwaille Bob, fais-toi aller!» and «Vas-y mon Bob, t'es capable; vas-y mon Bob!» when Bob Gratton [(Julien Poulin)] is about to dive in the pool. See more »
Politically engaged in all his films (and books), Pierre Falardeau might be the biggest mouth of cinema in Quebec but at least he has something to say. (contrarily to I would say 90% of film makers) This movie is about a liberal federalist who worships Elvis. This caricatural archetype (Elvis Gratton)represents the mass of people who voted "NO" in the 1980 referendum for the separation of Quebec from the rest of Canada. The film is like a big satire of those people. They are ridiculized because of the directors' opinion. When you are informed about the political situation and history of Québec, you can understand the other level of lecture present in the movie. The comedy aspect of the movie is there to appeal to the kind of people who like "stupid" movies. But in fact, this is far from being a stupid one.
by the way, Julien Poulin is GREAT! and so is Denise Mercier in this wise and hilarious burlesque picture!
