| Too much like a stage play
One look at "Cadavres" different sceneries or acting quickly reveals that the crew and the actors really invested a lot of energy in this project... and it shows way too much.

Sadly, the result looks more like an exaggerated stage play than a movie. François Barcelo's script itself is awful, full of unbelievably cartoonish characters evolving in unnatural studio-made locations. The family's old house especially looks studio-made.

Although the lighting and special effects are beautiful to the eye, they just add to the whole artificial mess. The movie-in-the-movie scenes featuring the actress' TV character look like dumb caricatures of TV shows. There is now way they would have been screened outside of a children or comedy context.

Of course, people looking for coloured circus-like adult movies - there is some nudity and sex, but not that much - might like "Cadavres".

As for myself, the magic did not operate. I prefer a more realistic, less-staged approach to movie-making.

All in all, Québec has produced a lot of better movies.
