Daniel Grou is a French Canadian director (mostly TV) in 2010 At Sundance film festival he came with shocking horror thriller genre movie 7 Days (horror fans must see) ... now brings disturbing and a bit provoking drama 10 1/2

10 1/2 is about problematic boy named Tommy. Tommy is a foster child who has developed violent behavior he lands under social worker Gilles Séguin (played by Claude Legault) care in some kind of children's home.

Hes angry, hes aggressive hes indecent. Day by day living on the edge, struggle through even craziest world.

highly recommended. unique movie, brilliantly acting
