The story of Alex (David La Haye) who craves for love and attention but, when it's getting too overwhelming, find refuge in the deepness of the sea. This contradiction is a the centre of the movie. A refreshing film with an original scenario, Un crabe dans la tête is fun to watch. But I would agree that there's a point to be made about how it's difficult to develop any feeling for the characters.
David La Haye is great in the main role. And the other characters are well performed by the rest of the cast. I liked Pascale Desrochers in the role of Audrey. She's also playing in the tv-series Virginie. That role seems to be a follow-up on the one she's playing in Un crabe dans la tête.
Out of 100, I gave it 82. That's good for *** out of ****.
Seen at home, in Toronto, on March 19th, 2004.
