Storyline

Jean-Marc is a man without qualities living in times that are out of joint. His wife and children ignore him; he's a mid-level civil servant in Montreal doing his job without care. He has an active imagination of sexual conquest, but his only real feelings come when he visits his aged mother, whose health is failing. When his wife leaves abruptly to work in Toronto, Jean-Marc sets out to reorder things with his daughters, his social life, and at work. In a world that at best is a farce, does he stand a chance?

Depression in images and words
5 April 2010 | by (Chicoutimi, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is well described with one word: "depression". The whole atmosphere of the film is just depressive, melancholic, sadistic, boring and senseless. Everything is grey, everyone is unhappy, everything is going wrong. Concerning the atmosphere, the director and main actor did a great job, without any doubt, but who wants to see a movie that shows just a negative sense of the life and a pseudo-critical family or society portrait? You have not any fun by watching this movie, but if you want to feel down and depressive, go for it, but watch it alone, because it could destroy the atmosphere of a movie night with some friends.
