Storyline

Fifteen years after he last saw him, Danny Cimmerman, a Toronto banker, comes back to Vancouver to say goodbye to his ethnic Croatian gangster father, John Cimmerman, who is on his death bed. Danny never approved of how his father made a living, the reason why Danny left town in the first place, and conversely John felt Danny was a disappointment. Regardless, John's death bed wish is for Danny to take over the family business and make it legitimate. Part of that entails Danny marrying Anika Nowak, the daughter of one of John's associates, Louis Nowak. The transition to legitimacy will not be easy as some friends and enemies may want to exploit what they see as a weakness in the organization during the transition. Danny is attacked one evening by two people who knew he was carrying a large wad of cash, which he guesses was organized by someone on the inside.

A foray into dark Canadian cinema
1 March 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A great piece of Canadian cinema. "Crossing" is not for the weak of heart, but it is one Canadian film that takes you on a wild ride. Sebastian Spence is enthralling as Daniel. His portrayal of a cross-dressing gangster (something that could be handle distastefully quite easily) is done without a hint of mockery or imitation. He is compelling, and one can truly sense the struggle he is having with himself.

This film host a cast of various celebutants. We have Crystal Buble (little sister to crooner Michael) in one of her first film's this reviewer has personally seen. Buble is enchanting and one cannot help but fall under her spell. Fred Ewanuick (of Corner Gas fame) is refreshingly diabolical, a step away from his usual bumbling, good natured characters we know him well as. Bif Naked also makes an appearance as the drag king extraordinaire, who we can personally thank for bringing about the internal struggle that drives the movie forward.

One aspect I personally enjoyed is the use of the Canadian local. In an age when everyone seems to be masking one city for another, this film embraces the Vancouver local, including the good and the bad. It is almost as though the city takes on the form of another character in the film, the omnipresent.

Overall an entertaining watch.
