This has to be one of the most boring plotlines i have ever seen. One deceived man discovering the past of his ex-fiancé. Woopsidoo! How original! It's layered with voice-over over voice-over, whispering, dissolves/cross-fading so much you just end up losing your lunch. It's a pretentious little film where you don't feel sorry for any character. They all end up getting on your nerves. The story itself is simply unbelievable and if i haven't made this overly clear, CHEESY!!! And why is this in the thriller genre? It's a stupid little drama that wants to be a thriller, but there's no thrill and no suspense. I would say the acting is bad too (wayyyy over the top) but i guess it's not the actor's fault but how they were directed (poorly!). Oh and that gratuitous nudity that tries to look like it's actually showing all the beauty of the female form! Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt and burned it! So overly done. Nothing new there. Move along folks, there's nothing to see.
It reflects the worse kind of Quebec cinema, the type that's everywhere and makes us look like a pathetic culture. No class whatsoever. The little village mentality even in the big city. We're supposed to believe that everyone cares about two people's love story? I mean the neighbours, the new girlfriend, the landlord, why do they give a damn if this guy loved the dead girl anyway? We have outgrown this little village mentality of the 50s in Quebec. It's not like that, yet they often portray Quebec and Canada as if it had never left this stage of evolution. All i have to say is bullsh*t.
