| Quite a good film
I just saw this film on DVD and thought it was very good. Based on true events the story tells of an American man found naked on a park bench in Monreal who has no idea who is is or how he got there. He is taken to hospital where he eventually realizes that he is gay and his name is James Brighton. The search is then on to find this man's identity since no one has reported him lost. He is taken in by a gay support group who help him find out who James Brighton is...which we find out is not this man. Has he stolen an identity or is he really amnesic? And who is the real James Brighton?

Shot mostly on video the quality is quite good as is the acting. The film is in both French and English with English subtitles were required.
