Jaques Godin gives another fine performance!
15 September 1999 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

I rented this film to see Jaques Godin, who was so great in "Salut Victor." This is a very different film and role. Edgy and aggressive, this dark psychological drama centers around the confession by a street hustler of the brutal and puzzling murder of his lover. Godin's performance is aggressive, rapid fire and dynamic. It's often apparent when a film is an adaptation of a play and it so it is with this one. While black and white flashbacks effectively illustrate the details of the confession, the focus is on the dialogue and writing. For American viewers the images are just different enough to be intriguing.
