Good French-Canadian Biopic of a Quebec Hero
13 July 2013 | by (Quebec) – See all my reviews

Great mix or drama, humor in this mostly true biopic. The end was touching and some of the stunts horrific. The acting was suburb for all the main characters, Antoine Bertrand did a great job as Louis Cyr as did his wife Rose-Maïté Erkoreka. A clean, for the family movie, no sex, drugs or extreme violence in a Quebec movie. 33 days, 8 million dollars can still make a great film. As a Quebecois, I am proud of this heritage. Several of his records still stand and he never even trained. Still the strongest man in the world. Amazing man, amazing movie. If you liked "The Rocket" you will like this. Should be noted that the movie is 1/3 English, 2/3 French.
