Incroyable!!!
14 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is how they made them in the 70's, the golden era of film-making, in my opinion. No easy answers. No resolution. The ending packs a wallop, unlike few I have seen. More questions than answers. Real people, real life unfolding before you. Unflinching emotions. Through most of the film, I thought Sylvie Moreau was giving the knockout performance. Then Macha Grenon blindsided me with her power in the final quarter. Everyone should see this, but unfortunately, because it is not a mainstream American film, it will not be seen by nearly enough of us. Bravo to everyone involved. I haven't seen C.R.A.Z.Y. yet, and I will this weekend, but it will have to be incredible to be better than this one, at least for me.
