Platte a Mort
25 June 2012 | by rickdumesnilSee all my reviews

Bad acting especially the lead and scenes cutting so abruptly got on my nerves. Some scenes never seemed to have continuation and very often were were confused. Although the group coloc is quite good.....is dedicating a film to dedé fortin a real necessity......Na. The only Quebec's film that i adore is CRAZY....others are just plain passable or boring. Nothing about this movie...acting storyline scenery is exciting....really hated it. i think the best actor of the whole bunch was the guy who played Mike...he was real and quite good...as for the female actresses they were plain bland and not worthy of being noticed. WONDER if the film was a hit...didn't hear much about it.
