An underrated clever entertainment
6 March 2016 | by info-1405See all my reviews

I didn't expect much from LE VRAI DU FAUX considering the lack of positive feedback from the critics and the viewers as well, at least on the IMDb. Moreover, I didn't really enjoy some of previous box office hits by director Emile Gaudreault.

So what a nice surprise to discover a Quebec movie which is actually a comedy- drama, offering a perfect balance between entertainment and psychological insight. I laughed often but also felt concerned with the more serious issues of this story about a successful filmmaker who want to redeem himself by helping a soldier suffering from a post-trauma syndrome. The acting, the cinematography, the editing (pacing) and all the other technical and artistic components of the movie are top-notch. Stephane Rousseau proves again that he is much more than a brilliant stand-up comic. Julie Le Breton is perfect as the psychologist who cares for her patient while she has to face her own personal problems. Guylaine Tremblay is amazingly funny and touching at times as the tormented mother.

All in all I spent a real good time watching LE VRAI DU FAUX and do not hesitate to recommend it to everyone who is familiar enough with Quebec language and cultural context.
