Trivia

-(L'acteur David Boutin parle de son expérience dans ce film): -"C'est le fun de participer à un projet qui dénonce quelque chose, qui te parle, et qui parle de sujets dont il faut parler justement. C'est un film qui a eu une vie, qui a été montré dans les écoles, qui a parti des discussions concernant le rapport entre les parents et leurs enfants; quoi faire avec l'intimidation, comment on réagi face à ça. Donc juste de susciter ces questionnements essentiels là, je trouve que c'est magnifique." (Témoignage à l'émission 'Les enfants de la télé', le 3 octobre 2018). See more »

Goofs

The movie was filmed in the winter but there is no way the provincial track meets would be held at that time of the year because of the impact of the cold weather on performance results. See more »

Not bad but...
19 March 2017 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

The intentions are good for this director who wanted to describe all the ugliness of the human mind, the disgusting behaviour or people using social networks to harm other folks. And the director uses the homosexuality topic and competition sport settings to bring this message. But there are unfortunately too many clichés here to be really effective. And I don't speak of the bomb sequence - which we could feel the "entry" at the beginning of the movie, like a thriller, which this feature is not. I repeat, the film maker put too many things here, too many. And he also wanted to show that mass murderers, carrying bombs or fire arms, were not always necessarily ISIS extremists terrorists. But the film is very agreeable to watch, the directing OK for me, and the characterization good too.
