Dubbed by the media as public enemy number one, Louis-Régis Savoie is serving 25 to life in prison. His young son Matthew comes to visit him for the first time in 5 years just in time to see his father shoot a police officer and escape. On the run, Régis has more of a devil-may-care attitude than ever before despite being the subject of a massive police manhunt. During his escapades he meets 8 different people and plans his escape from the country. Three days later he is shot dead by the police following a tip from someone who ratted on him. Each of the eight people give a different interpretation of the events and Savoie's personality seems to change according to whether he's being described by crime-scene professionals (an investigator, a journalist, a lawyer), family members (his son and his mother) or close friends (his wife, his right-hand man and the girlfriend of his right-hand man). Each of them imply the other is the rat. Written by
Requiem pour un beau sans-coeur is simply a great film. The story is about a criminal named Regis Savoie who gets out of jail and we see his life from the eyes of many people, each one giving his point of view on the man.The cast is awesome, especially Gildor Roy. The direction is simply wonderful and the script is very good; if you thought Elvis Gratton had the best one-liners in a Quebecer film, simply check this one out you will be very surprised. There are many ones that are truly funny! Overall, a great movie based on a true story also!! ...10/10
