Storyline

In Montreal, on the same day that a policeman shot twenty-one children, killing eleven, without any reason, the successful writer Thomas Roy amputates his fingers and tries to commit suicide. Completely catatonic, he is treated by Dr. Paul Lacasse and his big fan, the pregnant Dr. Jeanne Marcoux, in a psychiatric hospital. When the journalist Charles Monette, who is writing a book about Thomas, schedules a meeting with Dr. Paul, he shows pieces of newspaper showing that Thomas was present to the last thirty-seven tragedies in Canada. Dr. Paul reads the notes and decides to investigate further the life of Thomas Roy, disclosing dark secrets about his past. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

12 August 2009 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

This film has no dynamic composition to nail you to the screen. Pity, as it really has wonderful actors, some beautiful camera work. Idea is pure mediocrity and all the film could be done in 20 minutes and we wouldn't even remember what happened during the rest of the time and certainly wouldn't regret. As for the plot, I don't see it original. Evil in human form transformed into controversial social character of individual, all that has been exploated a million times especially since the early years of the 70s, and then later on we got tons of movies where "the evil" is being spread around causing disasters, while all the time being observed by skeptic representatives of modern science. 2 out of 10, if you ask me.
