Louise is living in Montreal, unemployed. Her sister Paulette often gives her a hard time. She only gets to see her poetry-quoting married boyfriend Julien once a week. She hangs out a lot at the dance studio in her building... Louise decides to offer an hour of her time to strangers on the street. "An hour of myself", to do whatever they want to do. But one hour precisely, that's it. This leads to many different situations, some funny, some sexy, some sad. Louise talks to someone who later turns out to have been an undercover reporter. The reporter anticipates a bad end for Louise... Written by David Badger

wow, great and realistic movie, very difficult to watch
24 April 2007 | by (Slovakia) – See all my reviews

for me this movie was extremely difficult to watch. the story is about Louise, who is very shy, do not know what she wants, and is still extremely traumatized from death of her parents from her childhood. she wants attention and feel feelings, but cannot reach nobody and nobody cant really reach her. so she starts to play a game, where she is stopping people on the street and tells them that is giving them one hour oh her life, when they can do anything what they want with her. it is a situation, where she is curious what other people can give her, and what variety of feelings can she feel and get, to feel alive. during the movie we are going through all variety of feelings, emotions and situations. it is very psychological movie, that makes me think a lot, because some people have a lot of luck and other things around them, but they just don't see it or aren't willing to take it, while others (like in this movie), people are desperate and are wiling to do anything to get into some situation and feel something, to feel ALIVE.. and i believe, that the movie is very well made, the reality and situations are realistic. and if you think, it will makes you sad and happy a little bit at the same time.. yeah, and the music is also nice, French acordeon and piano.. anyway, really worth of watching, but it is not a COMEDY!!! (like shown on the top). suitable for club or underground audience. 9 out of 10...
