An excellent Quebecois film
30 October 2002 | by (Oakville, Canada) – See all my reviews

I have just come back from watching Le Nèg' and I was thoroughly impressed with the film as a whole. As a film student in Ottawa, I am exposed to many films including Quebecois films, to which this stands out. The acting done by all actors differentiate from each other so uniquely that it brings the film up to an entire different level. This is intertwined with captivating shots that Morin uses to include the audience within each character. The use of extreme close-ups is tastefully done, focusing on specific areas of the face. The film is partly seen through the eyes of a mentally handicapped character playing with his toy figurines, which ultimately tells the story. In all, Morin's Le Nèg is a captivating film with humouristic elements to cook up a powerful, yet thoughtful piece of cinema.
