I can't express how bad this film really was, but I'll give it a go. I don't speak French and in this case it was a blessing. The story was flimsy, unrealistic and to be honest boring. The cast constantly flopped into song, and while I don't mind a musical, these 'songs' were so turgid and sickly I felt like puking on the spot. All sense of realism was discarded, no characterisation was attempted, and the main child actor was so irritating I just wanted to smack him in the face every time he appeared on screen. The only plus was that the photography wasn't terrible, and some of the Canadian scenery was nice. Someone in the cinema fell asleep so I assume I wasn't the only one who felt this way, and in fact my female companion agrees with my comments.
I'll be interested to see if anyone gives this a positive rating.
