Let's go Gilles!
2 March 2000 | by (St-Romuald, Québec) – See all my reviews

The principal attraction of this movie, a family and police drama set in contemporary Montréal, was the great play by Gilles Maheu, which has since then become a sucessful theatre director in Québec and around the world. Seeing him ride a motorcycle and fighting against gangsters was very interesting!

People shouldn't expect to see a similiar movie from "Léolo" of the same director; this one proves to be way less artistically refined.
