I viewed this film dubbed in English three times. It was worth it every time.
This is really a gentle comedy-romance that in spite of a few scenes could almost be classed as family viewing. It deals lightheartedly with themes of media invitation into and invasion of our lives with a delightful, humourous little twist at the end. Its Montréal location is an ideal setting for the story and gives it a local feel.
Martin Drainville returns an excellent performance as Louis, the very average guy down-the-street clerk in the stereo store. We need to see more of him in any language.
Known for some steamy scenes in the TV series "Scoop," with Roy Dupuis, (also starring Drainville) Macha Grenon drops her bombshell into a cameo appearance as Lola Laflamme in a discothèque encounter with Louis.
In order to preserve its original tone, one might want to view it with subtitles.
