Morin should recycle in the grocery business...
8 August 2003 | by (Montréal, Québec) – See all my reviews

This film does not denounce racism. It's a miss. I cannot recommend this creation. I really think I lost my time watching it. Sorry Mr. Morin... If Robert Morin continues directing he should let others write the stories.
