Storyline

After an unpleasant run-in with a group of bikers, a young convenience store robber (Marc) gets approached by the same bikers to help out with a picnic. After the picnic, seeing he has guts, the bikers propose him for membership. As the story unfolds, Marc winds up questioning his own morality and wondering whether he's going down the wrong path. The biggest problem, however, is that one of his friends got him into trouble, and he has little time to fix it... Written by Anonymous

Simple, Honest and Eye-Opening
26 November 2001 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Michel Jette has given us an unsettling glimpse at what organized crime is really like. Set in one of the somewhat less lavish neighborhood of Montreal, Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, the movie explores the struggles of teenagers who are irreversibly drawn into a world of crime, deadly loyalty and power struggle. Realistic and well-acted, the simple premise of the movie lets the storyline creep up slowly with occasional twists and turns, but the social commentary it gives is confusingly subtle and thought-provocative even in its apparent directness. While less extravagant than Soderberg's Traffic, it's realism and attempted objectivity at the attractive, yet morally questionable, social and economic underworld is a quality that will give this film a long-lasting effect to most avid viewers. When it ends, you will still have plenty to think about.

Try to get your hands on this one. Probably the best French-Canadian film in years. 9/10
