Trivia

According to Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge, while filming the skydiving scene over the island and with the permission of the tower control at the Montreal airport, they flew their plane at 13000 feet and they were on stand by since it's a busy corridor for planes to land. While they were waiting to jump, 5000 feet below them, the pilot told them to look down and they saw the A380 pass underneath. See more »

Les pieds dans le vide... Not in the "vide" for nothing
8 January 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

What blew me away in this movie is the cinematography : not only is there breathtaking shots of skydiving, but the quirky shots and the play with colours is worth watching the movie just for that. Unfortunately, it's worth watching just for that... Plot wise, I could some it up like this : 2 sky diving freaks, one a teacher and the other a compulsive diver, are in a love triangle with one girl. I say love triangle, only I should call it a love V : both guys like the girl and the girl likes both boys... angst is brought in when the hotheaded compulsive diver takes increasingly dangerous risks despite the cool-headed teacher's criticism of this. The whole movie is pretty much a ping pong ball game of "do what I tell you to" vs "I don't wanna" mixed in with the incomprehensibly slutty girlfriend.

***SPOILER ALERT*** So how does the movie end and ruin the rest of the picture? After the hotheaded fellow is grounded for his unnecessary risks, he follows the teacher to an illegal base jumping run and jumps right behind him, thus distracting the teacher who ends up nearly getting killed. So despite being a jerk the whole movie AND causing a man to become paraplegic, everybody seems to be OK with it and forgives the harm done... I felt it was a big slap in the face to our credibility. It's almost as if they realized, woops we're up to two hours, let's wrap up this picture! (oh, and did I fail to mention they said at least twice that base jumping is illegal and if they get caught they go to prison or get a huge fine? They DO get caught and yet there's no mention of any consequences whatsoever. Overall, for fans of nice photography and skydiving, the movie is a must, but if all you're looking for is a good story, this one is a miss.
