Storyline

1952: Bishop Bilodeau visits a québécois prison to hear the confession of a boyhood friend jailed for murder 40 years ago. The inmates force the prelate to watch a play depicting what really happened in 1912. We meet him as a young man, strait-laced, intent on convincing Simon (now the convict) to join the seminary with him. Vallier, the son of an impoverished and eccentric countess, loves Simon and he is drawn to Vallier, but in fear of his father's wrath for kissing Vallier during drama rehearsal, Simon courts a visiting Parisian, asking her to marry him. Vallier, encouraged by his mother, attends the engagement party to declare his love for Simon. And what does the watchful Bilodeau do? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Of a Shakespearian genre
8 October 2003 | by (San Antonio, Texas) – See all my reviews

A truly remarkable film. The characters are all played by males reminiscent of the days of Shakespeare. And what a delight to watch. I've seen it several times and am always impressed with the acting as well as the plot. This was a truly artistic endeavor above the traditional film making. One has to flow with the several roles to understand the interaction of the characters and appreciate the actors in those roles. Forget the gay aspect, and appreciate the brilliant acting and roles played out. Not a typical Hollywood mill production, but something with true artistry. A must see.
