Lyne Charlebois has given us an absorbing study of a young woman who feels the wrongs done her by her mother, and society in general, very intensely. Kiki's like a live wire: touch her and you'll get a nasty shock. She keeps a middle-aged man captive to her emotional extremes. Tcheky is married but can't get enough of Kiki's wildness. Mikael (played very winningly by Pierre-Luc Brilliant) is a healthy alternative to Tcheky, but Kiki has difficulty understanding this. This is one of the few recent films that deals convincingly with psychosis--in this case, borderline disorder.
Isabelle Blais has what it takes to establish herself on the international film scene. I thought of Marie-Josee Croze as I watched her, she has the same skill of inhabiting her character. Angele Coutu as the grandmother had some effective scenes as the stable member of the family.
