A Great Biopic but...
25 March 2009 | by (Montreal, Quebec) – See all my reviews

I liked this film, very touching, yet I have a few reservations. But Sébastien Ricard is really terrific as Dédé. I'm always very critical of details (the beginning is too slow, some shots are ugly and should have been left out, Ricard can't ski, etc.) but overall it does not hinder my appreciation of the whole. The music is what makes this movie work so well. Being about a musician, I suppose it's the least we should expect, but in this case it really takes us on an emotional trip and forces a new understanding of lyrics and melodies the fans of Les Colocs have heard countless times before.

I'm just a bit disappointed because it could have been so much more powerful had the editing been tighter, some dialogues reworked or omitted. There are moments of pure cinematographic poetry in this film. It is reminiscent of Jean-Claude Lauzon at times. But this crazy touch is quickly put aside (safe for a scene at the hospital) for no apparent reasons. I'm happy with the overall result, but also a bit sad that I didn't get to see the film it could have been, given that all the ingredients were obviously there!
