Storyline

Gilles meets Guylaine on a beach. He's a bookish scholar with glasses; she's a waitress in a blue-collar bar in a rough part of Montreal. Gilles comes for a visit... Guylaine's brother Bob works for the brutal gangster Matroni. Two toughs have hijacked a tractor-trailer full of stolen car parts that Matroni was about to deliver to an even worse gangster, Boyd. Boyd is very dangerous and he wants those parts. Guylaine's friend Linda knows the hijackers and has left their names with her mum in a letter. The thugs have gotten to Bob and beaten him up, so that means only one person can take the letter to Matroni at his autowrecking yard, polite and courteous Gilles... Written by David Badger

Makes you want to have a gin tonic!
9 December 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Gilles, the doctorate student, meets Guylaine, the waitress in a late-night snack. He gets drawn into her world. A world of dealers, petty criminals and mafia guys. Of course, all of this is told in a comical way. There's the voice of the narrator who tells Gilles' story. A bit philosophical, a bit poetical. Camera work is great too. Great use of the split screen. The only drawback, the love story is not credible (even though it's not supposed to be, it's a bit annoying).

The comedy is a hit because of Pierre Lebeau's character: Matroni. He's funny in the way he talks, in the way he acts. Gary Boudreault is also funny.

Not a bad way to spend 90 minutes.

Out of 100, I give it 76. That's good for **½ out of ****.

Seen at home, in Toronto, on November 24th, 2002.
