F.Y.I. One of the 10 Best Canadian movies of the Year
5 January 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Many thanks to our previous reviewer for - once again - confirming how narrow minded and stereotypical can the response of the general American viewing public be towards foreign material. Particularly in regards to great films made with very, very limited resources. Comparisons to Bonnie and Clyde? Please. If you can't read Cassavetes or the early Scorsese throughout Morlando's film I won't bother explain. And b.t.w. Scott Speedman completely nails the part with his best performance to date in my (and not only mine) opinion. I won't start here the debate on the current sorry and pathetic state of the big US film studios and market in general because that would be like shooting on the Red Cross. Please...

My most sincere admiration goes to this movie, the director and the production team as a whole.

BRAVO!!!
