Powerful
31 January 2001 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This historical movie has the depth necessary to convey an appropriate message and reflect on the very widespread process of colonisation and assimilation. The eternal theme of liberty and freedom are omnipresent, but there also is a very human aspect to it. Since the movie is almost exclusively confined to a jail cell, it was nice to see the effects political imprisonment had on individuals. The movie clearly explains the motivation French Quebecers have to be independent and also deals with the actualisation of loyalty, friendship, love and sacrifice. The script is well written and the acting thorough. All in all, a great Quebec film.
