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 pr1mal_1

A great cast
26 April 2002 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

This is one of Robert Morin's best, along with "Quiconque Meurt, Meurt À Douleur". Gildor Roy offers what I consider to be his best performance ever as Regis Savoie, a dangerous criminal on the loose after breaking out of prison. The character is loosely based on Richard Blass, a well-known criminal in Quebec. In "Requiem", Robert Morin uses camera angles and movements that strongly reflect his video roots. He also has different characters narrate parts of the story, each of them telling their little tidbit of story as seen through their eyes. The casting his what really sets this movie appart. The cast is simply perfect. Even smaller parts are not neglected. This is probably due to the unusual storyline. Since even smaller characters got to narrate the story, Morin took special care to be sure they did a good job.
