Very not bad for something "made in Quebec"
5 April 1999 | by (Quebec City) – See all my reviews

This is definitely not the best movie of the year, but you've got to see it. I think Luc Picard (the leading character) has ever been better but Julien Poulin is at his best. The scenario is excellent and if the producer had invested a couple of extra bucks it may have been an international success. I take the occasion to mention that Quebecers have recently released many good movies and I hope they'll keep doing it.
