wow.
24 October 2006 | by dearpmSee all my reviews

An incredibly moving film. Solid acting, humorous in the right parts, in the sense that the humour seems real. In fact, everything seems to play out so naturally. The subtlety of how to convey how to act within a film is captured magnificently, especially given that the actors are of course acting within the film. The weight of the opening lines, the sequence that Luc Picard must learn for his audition, take on such incredible meaning by the end, in part because of the fluid storyline. The film is dreamy and poetic while still rooted in a very contemporary vision of Québec life and culture. The cameo with director Robert LePage playing, of course, a director, at the beginning with Denis Bernard was great and starts the film on equal footing between lightheartedness and drama. A superb example of brilliant quebequois film-making.
