Effective Drama - best if you understand joual
This film uses some gritty Montreal locations to tell of a man (David Boutin), a former delinquent and now owner of a sanitation firm who, out of concern for someone as lost as he once was, becomes involved with an adolescent, drug-dependent streetwalker. He tries to get her off the street, off drugs, and to convince her that she is an attractive person who could do better with her life. This gets him into violent trouble with the street gang that controls her, all ending with no one the better for his efforts. This film, without subtitles and due to blue-collar dialogue and speech, might only be understood by those who understand Quebecois.
