| Constant humor, fast pace, insightful
The most unfortunate fact about this film is that so much nuance would be lost in an English translation, and most won't watch it with subtitles.

Cast: The acting was fabulous, and although the Haitian seemed somewhat stereotypical, I would give the director the benefit of the doubt and assume he meant to create a jolly character. He certainly was not stereotyped as unintelligent. Quite the contrary.

Content: Not spoon-fed but clear. Excellent. Insightful both on a political and philosophical level.

Humor: It is difficult to determine whether this would be funny to someone not well-versed in Quebec culture. But to someone who is, the humor was there throughout even the most serious parts. Nicely done. There is an abundance of blue collar humor that is nevertheless accessible to all.

Editing: No obvious problems.

Pace: Fast and fluent, with few exceptions.

Story: One turn of events could have been better explained, as pertains to the main character's wife.

Female characters: One gets the feeling that the daughter's role was written by a woman and the wife's by a man. The former was much better, though this is not a criticism on a feminist level, since both female characters were strong and prominent.

Overall, everyone involved in this film should be proud. The Harper parody was hilarious!
