Not that good.
28 August 2005 | by gmoore44See all my reviews

Suzanne is a perfect example of the state of Canadian film-making in the 1970 and 80's. The plot device of Suzanne growing up in the culture that was Montreal of the 1950's will not really resonate with viewers from other countries. Even so, the film might be able to overcome that except for one big problem. The acting is not good. It sinks to a soup opera level as the usual soup opera plot devices happen to the lead character. The dialog is equally uninspired, and the actors look and sound uncomfortable delivering such clichéd lines. I cannot recommend this movie on any level. Unless you are a HUGE Jennifer Dale fan (and even then you might have trouble enjoying this movie) this is one to miss.
