Enjoyable, Could Have Been Great...
9 April 2003 | by (Northampton, MA) – See all my reviews

As it stands, the movie's strength are more in the costumes and some of the Quebec city imagery. Several elements showed potential but weren't used to their fullest. For instance, using the symbolic use of horse imagery helped the film achieve some poetic effect but the fact that its meaning is described almost explicitly at the beginning of the movie downplays this effect.

Acting is quite uneven both in "quality" and in style. Some of this makes sense and could have been exploited, but it does bring the movie down, at times. Same with some of the cinematography. Some of the techniques used would have made more sense contextualized and only feel "maladroit" as they are.

Still, the movie is enjoyable in its portrayal of the artistic community of that era. As a Montrealer, it did make me want to go to Quebec city more often. And there are some very funny moments.
