Family relationships can be complicated by the emergence of a personal identity, territory and desire to belong. Can love really conquer all?
Phenomenal! Amazing movie, superbly acted. (Michel Cote is nothing less than perfect in the role of Gervais Beaulieu.) Nothing amiss. Great music, drama, emotions.
I was in Montreal briefly in July and saw the movie twice. Came out as awed by it the second time as I did the first around. Although it could have been filmed in the States (the story is not particular to Quebec), it belongs to Quebec and to the people who lived similar experiences growing up in the 70s. My only hope is that it will get the recognition it deserves on the international scene.
I heard American producers are thinking of buying the rights to film it in the States... I say they should put subtitles and let it ride the wave to success.
