excellent character study
1 April 1999 | by (Halifax, Nova Scotia) – See all my reviews

Being the story of why he killed his friend and lover, this film presents a possible altruistic reason for what appears to be a cold-blooded murder. Believe it or not, like it or not, some people want to die and we don't know about Claude, but his lover grants the unvoiced desire. The cop to whom he tells his story understands. Very similar to 'Prick Up Your Ears' though very different at the same time. If you're sick of Hollywood's predictable view, see this Canadian movie.
