Un film magnifique
2 July 2002 | by (Torrance, CA USA) – See all my reviews

Luc Picard is a great actor. I've seen several of his films and I think this is his best performance. Pierre Falardeau, despite his seemingly extreme separatist views, makes powerful films. His comments about not caring what they thought of his film in remote parts of English Canada are really arrogant, but I can't wait to see what he gives us next. And Sylvie Drapeau was wonderful in this one, too.
