Well made, well acted but not a U.S. blockbuster.....
4 December 2006 | by (Montreal, Quebec) – See all my reviews

My friend dragged me, kicking and screaming, to see this movie as i'm so not a fan of Quebec-made movies. I was mistaken (in this case).

This flick is very well made, no questions about it. The writing is witty, the characters are believable (except the jeweller, who is beyond words), the production is all around perfect, so it's worth the ticket price.

Spoilers ahead.

Essentially, the story revolves around an accountant who decides to take back control of his life (and reconquer his wife)by exacting a little vengeance on his psychotic boss. He does so by setting up a break-in in his employer's store with the help of a weird assistant. The story has many surprising twists and discussing them here would spoil your fun.

End spoilers.

The movie was filmed (at least the exteriors) in Old Montreal but it does not really give a touristy view of Montreal. You'll see bits and pieces of two or three neighborhoods but no postcards there.

The cast is made of a few well known faces but their appearance does not detract from the story telling. The main character is played by an experienced actor which i never noticed before. He looks the part and shows a nice image of an intelligent man who let himself get devoured by a boring job and turned into a boring wimp. His turnaround is a feel-good moment.

Like many Quebec-made movies, it is well crafted but cannot compete with U.S. made blockbusters and does not even try (which does bug me a tad, but that's a debate for another place than IMDb). I'm not sure the movie will be released outside of Canada but the concept could easily be adapted to foreign markets, as the theme of revenge and crazy bosses is pretty well universal.
