1976. Montreal. Eight people who wanted to see and be seen at the trendiest disco will be juggling fame and anonymity until they will be forced to make sober choices in an era when excess was the norm, and when disco was king.
Les Beaux Malaises is a fictional series based on the life (and starring) Martin Matte, a comedian and popular figure in PQ, Canada. It tells the story of the awkward but funny moments that the stand-up man has to face everyday.
A much-needed boost, in the form of a new factory, is promised to the residents of the tiny fishing village St. Marie-La-Mauderne, provided they can lure a doctor to take up full-time residency on the island. Inspired, the villagers devise a scheme to make Dr. Christopher Lewis a local.

I had the pleasure of viewing this film with a group of friends. I had never heard of Michel Côté, Sylvie Léonard or the director Gabriel Pelletier. But after seeing "Vie après l'amour, La - Life After Love," I'm impressed. As a filmmaker myself, I know that comedies are the most difficult films to make.
Michel Côté is truly a genius in every sense of the word. This film deserves to be seen. I could not believe the laughter of everyone while they watched this film. It was even more gratifying since no one understood French. They laughed from the brilliant opening scene through the entire film and were moved by the ending scene. It's not perfect, but the undiscovered talents, in the USA, of Michel Côté and all of the actors is an atrocity. Alliance Atlantis should have released this film in the United States.
Since watching this film, all of my friends have been ordering other movies by Michel Côté and director Gabriel Pelletier. Also, Ken Scott should be applauded for the script.
