A nice, well-crafted and fun movie
10 October 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Be warned : « Les grandes chaleurs » is nothing revolutionary.

Yet, in Québec's maturing cinema, it is the nice proof that our film industry is a healthy one.

The story is simple : a widow having just lost her husband gets the opportunity to have a relationship with a troublesome yet passionate young adult, and finally decides to take it, after a lot of turmoil.

If the movie is nothing memorable, a lot of things just work great : actors are excellent, photography is crisp and sometimes inventive, music fits the mood (even if really not my type), and the editing makes the movie progress without breaking the rhythm. The storyline, all the while being simple, even has a few surprising twists in its bag.

Bottom line : a fun film to entertain a cold evening, and a good DVD gift for ageing women out there.
