Just a few words to say of much I love this film!! I recently watched it for a second time and I liked it even more!! The acting is excellent, the writing is flawless (in a realistic kind of way) and the directing is very sober (the camera is very static with very minimal editing).
It's such a shame that this film did so little at the box office. I can easily understand why the average John Doe didn't bother but what about all those cinephiles out there ??
As far as I am concern, "Continental - Un Film Sans Fusil" ranks among some of the great French Canadian films such as "Les Ordres", "Mon Oncle Antoine", "Les Bons Débarras", etc...
Please do yourself a favor and go watch it right now!!
