Quotes

Luc Sauvageau: In the centuries that follow, a civilization is always judged by its architecture. Building is an activity of hope. The hope that what we create will be useful and beautiful. The hope of telling future generations who we were. And the hope they will be moved, as we were by the architecture of those who came before us. Thank you.

It had low expectations and it was better than I thought
20 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Being a huge fan of ''Le Déclin de l'Empire Américain'' and of ''Les Invasions Barbares'' I was anticipating this film to be pretty awesome until I read reviews that were saying that even though the images are absolutely stunning, the movie was empty. Well I definitely agree about the images, but the film wasn't empty at all. It was a realistic look at the life of a beautiful, successful young adult. The characters are ''modern'' if I can use such a term. They admit to cheat on their partner without any guilt like it was normal and I feel a little social criticism on Arcand's part. It's like the film Nashville, there's not really a story, but some observations by the director. I don't compare this movie with Nashville, but I think you get the point. It's a beautifully shot realistic view into a young successful architect life
