Yet another stunning film from Quebec which has had little or no release outside of Francophone Canada.
26 May 2011 | by (Bermuda) – See all my reviews

Jessy, age 12, dreams of becoming a wrestler. Already, life is a daily fight; home is chaotic and his innocence is quickly disappearing. Reality hits hard in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, a poor area of Montreal, but it can't compete with the Friday night wrestling that gives Jessy the courage to escape his destiny. "Le Ring" tells the story of a little fighter determined to make his own way.

Maxime Desjardins-Tremblay effortlessly plays the lost soul Jessy in his acting debut; he is from the same neighbourhood where the story is set, perhaps giving him the ease before the camera one would expect from a veteran performer.

Tough, gritty, and sometimes difficult to watch, "Le Ring" takes the viewer deep into an alien world that is in reality only a few miles away… Much of the dialogue seems to be in Joual, the urban dialect of Montreal, which is also a rarity in film. (Think "Glasgow English")
