A masterpiece in its genre
14 November 2009 | by (Canada, Montreal) – See all my reviews

This film merits more than the 5.8/10 people voted. I wonder why it's popularity dropped 18% this week, but I am not a member of ImdbPro so I cannot know why. The director, Bernard Hébert, never did a movie since this one in 2003, it is a pity because he is very good. THe film he did before this one, The Night of the Flood, an animation movie, seems pretty good, judging by the votes and the 2 comments, and I would like to see it. "The Favourite Game", the novel by Leonard Cohen (who's my favourite singer), and the movie are both really good, but I would like to see a film adapted from his other novel, "Beautiful Losers", it would be much more psychedelic than "The Favourite Game". This movie, the screenplay, the actors, et cetera, everything is excellent, the story constantly make us travel between present and past, reality and thoughts... The words in it make us think about the lovers and love stories we have or had in our own lives, how we deal with things, etc...
