Other realities
9 October 2001 | by (Montréal, Québec) – See all my reviews

An Algerian immigrant, few days before receiving his papers to become a Canadian citizen finds out that his 19 years old son has erased all the data from government offices, as a terrorist action, and has disappeared somewhere in Northern Quebec.

With Huguette (his son's girlfriend, a tattoo artist), he leaves in a truck, "borrowed" to his former employer, for the Temiscamingue region where they try to convince this 19 years old revolutionnary not to destroy, with twenty guys, a bunch of passports.

Even if the terrorist underscore of the film sounds weak, it is a great motor of emotions beautifully delivered by the actors. Anger, compassion, love, all leading to a very touching - tear-pulling - ending for the movie, on an almost caricatural national anthem sung by immigrants.

This film is at the image of the new Québec cinema, new faces, new themes, new realities, a new form for the poetic languages, with it's strengths and weaknesses, with a great sense of reality, leaving enough space for the mind to travel.
