Really good!
5 September 2012 | by through-10See all my reviews

Despite the synopsis, it is actually quite a good film. Those that are into Canadian film in general will appreciate the style -not to mention there are humorous moments that are quite memorable.

The plot itself doesn't get much deeper than the summary, but the scenes themselves are snaps shots; almost like a day in the life of one man.

I was on a flight to Alberta and decided to see what they had under 'french language film'. i was not impressed by "ex-soccer player moves to Montreal and becomes a hit-man" but it was the only one I hadn't seen. I gave it a chance, and am so glad I did!
