Loosely based on actual happenings which I remember from the news. I recognized many of the actors from Canadian T.V. Also some of the location shots were familiar (and, alas) no longer exist. Suitable low budget T.V. fare. I watched on T.V. (MPIX). Any Montrealer, I'm sure, would like this picture because of the familiar location shots. For instance, the Montreal Pool Room with its French fried potatoes (frites) and steamed hot dogs (steamés). Years ago, I used to be a regular. Having been there several time in my salad days, I was happy to see the old place once more. Ken Welsh turned in a good performance. We cannot be completely negative with respect to average TV fare. This might not be the Godfather or Bonny and Clyde, but it does have its own merits.
