Good movie, dialogs... so-so

I had a good time seeing this one... But the dialogs left a sour taste in my mouth.

Dan Bigras (writer/director) is a singer here in Québec, and I think this was the one thing that hurts the movie most: The dialogs ain't real, it's almost prose, I can't relate to that. That's it.

I mean, I would expect a movie talking about the hard life in the streets to speak the language of the streets, but I didn't feel that. But, the more the movie goes, the less I felt this prose talking (I think he wrote that chronologically, getting better and better as he wrote, but maybe some external reviews would have been a good idea).

Beside this, it's a good flick. I liked how Bigras developed the characters (he didn't focus only on the two main ones, which is a big plus for me). I had the feeling he had to cut down a lot of scenes (mostly in the beginning), but nothing too exaggerated.

So, go see it, but don't expect realistic dialogs...
