Oddly amusing !
21 November 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Not really a good film, not really a bad film. It's only a collection of moments in the disillusioned life of Jean-Marc, an ex-football (soccer) star who left France after his love's death to come live in Montreal.

Completely ruined, his life is as empty as his apartment and he has to steal to make ends meet.

He reluctantly agrees to kill a man, Igor Rizzi, but a few twists of fate convince him to maybe give the guy a chance, and at the same time give himself a fresh start.

The acting is pretty good from all the members of the great cast. Mitrani's art direction consist of having his characters walk (a lot !) in some of Montreal's landmarks, which gives the movie a weird sense of discontinuity as the action moves all over the city.

It's just too bad that the movie feels so amateurish: from the repetitive names in the quirky credits to the random hand-held camera work and the lack of a solid narrative. Remove the time wasted on Jean-Marc's snow walks and this movie becomes a short film.

Despite all this, oddly, this "barely 90 minutes" movie shows enough warmth and humor to make up for all it's faults.

Let's hope Noel Mitrani finds a decent budget and a more rounded script and crew to come up with a more polished end product on his next project.
