The quebec movie you must see (I still hope you'll see more than one)
23 April 2003 | by (Montréal, Québec) – See all my reviews

Le Nèg' is a cruelly powerful movie about intolerance. It is violent and dark, while still being strewn with humour (but I believe most of that humour will only be understood by French Canadians - Anyhow, see it subtitled). The actors do an extraordinary job (the dialogues where for the most part improvised), especially Emmanuel Bilodeau who is very convincing and it was clearly a great pleasure to see Beatrice Picard and René-Daniel Dubois. The emotions are very present and well represented, and the different ways the scenes were filmed bring a lot to the movie. Also, the allegoric part with the figurines and «Donnez-moi des roses» (of Fernand Gignac) is really a delight!

A movie you must see!
