Storyline

Henry Adler lives in Ontario by himself, regularly visits his gruff and critical father, and works in a bank; he's also an actor. He finds new purpose in life when he's cast as a cop in a realistic TV show. He gets into the part, borrowing the uniform from wardrobe, and walking around the city streets. Soon he's talking to bank customers as if he's a cop; this gets him in trouble with his boss, but Henry doesn't care. He falls for one of the actresses, Charlie, and they practice together. Henry's quirks and his intensity creep her out, though, and she breaks off all contact. He's desolate. Things come to a head when one of LA's finest mistakes Henry for a real cop.

A Great Canadian Secret
14 December 2002 | by (British Columbia) – See all my reviews

As far as Canadian films go, this isn't bad. Canadian cinema is usually poorly regarded with Canada, and not without reason mind you, but there some great examples of descent film making in this country. Unfortunately, most Canadians are ignorant to those examples and "ILaMiU" is no exception.

I haven't seen it since its premier night in Vancouver, but I have never forgotten about it either. Sure its production standards probably don't meet those of Hollywood or the UK and Continental Europe's, (it looked to be shot on high resolution video from what I remember) but that is just one aspect that shouldn't rule out this film entirely. It is more sophisticated than the many films released before it, yet it doesn't ring with the pretentions of an Egoyan film. It is a solid, descent, and reasonably straightforward character study. It also has the highly undervalued, under-used, and very beautiful Brigette Bako. "ILaMiU" is worth checking out
