I didn't think much of this film at the beginning. But the more and more I watched, the tide was turning. The cast is good. I especially liked Isabelle Brouillette and Jacynthe René. But Danny Gilmore was just OK and Serge Thériault maybe a little too much to handle. The movie tells how our lives are influenced by family ties and friendship. There's some depressing aspects to the movie, like the kid who lives downstairs from Isabelle Brouillette's character. But it all happens too often in real life. That's what makes it even more poignant. But the ending left me kind of dry.
The soundtrack is great. Excellent music by, among others, Mara Tremblay and Marie-Jo Thério.
Seen at home, in Toronto, on May 4th, 2005.
