A telling satire, that falls apart.
20 July 1999 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

In conception, _La Florida_ is a telling satire about the Americanization of Quebec's petite bourgeoisie. Although it begins promisingly, the implausibilities of the script combine with the perfunctory performances of its two "imported" Canadian stars, Margot Kidder and Michael Sarrazin, to make the film most unsatisfactory by the end. A disappointing experience, the film fails to deliver what it begins by promising. Rémy Girard and Pauline Lapointe, however, are excellent in the leading roles. They almost redeem the film.
