Storyline

Il y va à la place de Bruno, son patron qui a un empêchement de dernière minute. C'est donc totalement fortuitement que Vincent rencontre Pandore, une jeune femme mystérieuse et au comportement étrange, mais qui lui plaît immédiatement. Ils passent l'après-midi à l'hotel. Mais, peu après, Vincent confesse à son ami Xavier qu'il a peur d'avoir attrapé le SIDA. À compter de ce moment, sa vie bascule. Il rencontre Pandore, qui lui révèle qu'elle est séropositive.

Nice Scenery. But...
20 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

This comment is meant as a warning. Maybe I wasn't in the mood for this kind of movie. Also, I didn't see "Le cour au poing" (the second part of the trilogy) but there's not supposed to be a very strong link between the three parts.

This film didn't really do it for me. The cinematography was good: lots of nice shots of Montreal (obviously, I'm biased), some good work integrating different visual paces...

And it's not that the acting or directing were bad. In fact, some of it is surprisingly convincing and comes from unlikely characters (thinking about Ariane, played by Maude Guérin). The musical selection was quite fun and appropriate. So there's a few things to enjoy through this movie.

But the storyline is, in my opinion, pretty weak even though it seems to be intended as a thought-provoking approach to deep subjects. "Eldorado" (the first part of the trilogy) probably had similar intentions but was much more subtle in this respect.

Overall, be prepared for a rather convoluted plot accompanying a few nice images and sounds. As a TV show episode, it would have been quite good. But as a movie, it's rather disappointing.
