Very good movie
12 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

Detective movies are very rare in Quebec. This ons is the rare exception. This is not a detective movie like Americans do: no explosions, no murders in slow motion, no cars jumping out of building windows. Just a very intelligent story, with a fine acting. Luc Picard is doing a wonderful job as the star, and so is Julien Poulin, as his father. Like the guy from Québec city, just before me, I'm very pleased with most of the movies from Quebec in the second half of the 1990's. This one is very good example. We're pround of that (Nous en sommes fiers!)
