Racism as a pretext
21 October 2002 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

Robert Morin is mostly known for doing videos with the Coop Video de Montreal. His films are generally rude and free from esthetic conventions. With this new movie, Morin doesn't win is bet at all. Racism should be denounced, following his words, while the piece is mostly made of cursing words. Yet, a few characters, like the doctor, are truly funny. Count the detective on too. But otherwise, Le Neg' is superficial since it avoids the real questions about racism.

Honestly, it isn't with movies of that type that Quebec's cinema is going to make us proud. And those characters, while they may exist, are not representative of the average people. Fact is that in this province, every social group is in minority: French people compared to English Canadians, English Montrealers compared to French People and others compared to the two above... There would have been something much more intelligent to do about such a subject.
