real moody movie
14 April 2004 | by (Ottawa, Ontario) – See all my reviews

This movie really hit the spot, it is made to be a moody movie and acheives that. The only scene that shows any hope for the characters is the prison break. the rest is pure dispair. there are beatings, rape, a suicide and even a transvestite.

Like another user said in a comment, it really shows that prisons do not really rehabilitate inmates. Like other prison movies such as the Shawshank Redemption that it destroys the human spirit instead.

wished that we saw more great movies like this from quebec. The industry is having a hard time due to the fact the movies generally do not do well in france because of the language barrier.

real hard movie.

good quebec production
