Josh is an ordinary teen living in an ordinary suburb, wedged between the high school, the mine and the skate park. One morning, he finds his friend Thomas's dead body. Next, he discovers that three more friends also killed themselves, leaving him out of their pact. As the sole survivor, Josh becomes more and more detached from the world around him. Only Mia, his best friend's girl, can reach him. With more questions than answers, Josh's is the story of a survivor. It is a modern portrait of today's teens: invincible yet fragile, clear-thinking yet confused, idealistic yet jaded. Written by
Do not be fooled: even if the movie talks about suicide, it doesn't criticize or judge the act itself. Instead, the movie follows the story of a survivor, a teenager who one day realizes that his four best friends have killed themselves in some sort of suicidal pact. Yes, the movie follows a very slow rhythm and there aren't many words spoken: they're spoken with the silences throughout the movie. The main actor (Maxime Dumontier) does a fine job supporting the movie by himself. The movie, however, finishes on a hight note. Because of its incredible ending, the movie obviously deserves a second viewing. Movie well done on a subject that isn't easy to elaborate. Bravo.
