This film could also be titled : When Culombo swaps his raincoat for a Sureté du Québec uniform. A taught well-knit yarn with rich characters. A classic whodunit that keeps us guessing all the while even though the evidence was out there for all to see. The characters are real and down to earth, very believable. The film also makes good use of the splendid scenery offered by the locale, the unique Iles de la Madeleine in Québec. A good, non-pretentious and entertaining film. If you have friends in law enforcement, I strongly recommend this film which showcases the work of a simple policeman dedicated to his profession with decency and integrity.
