Amazing on multiple levels
20 April 2006 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

I really hadn't paid attention to this movie, although I was interested simply because Luc Picard wrote and directed it. I have a lot of respect for his acting, and his stand on stuff. I saw it last night, and now I am amazed by his writing and directing talents as well. This movie hit me on so many levels -- it's like a modern-day Shakespearean tragedy. It heart-wrenchingly brings home the reality of our mortality. Crap happens! It's a very real-to-life movie, and very poetic at the same time. There are so many things to commend this movie for, but one cannot overlook the incredible performance of Luc Picard, himself. And the rest of the cast are amazing as well. I cared so much about these people it hurt. Beautiful.
