I would take a film that has a great feel over a film with a great plot any day, which is not even the case here, because I would argue that the plot has more than enough to keep you interested. David LaHaye's utterly watchable performance is spot on and unlike any other you'll ever see -- and men don't usually get kudos from women for their portrayal of immature men. And if that wasn't enough, André Turpin, who directed and shot this, has a way of making films look like they're lit with light that's bounced off crystals -- there's this beautiful sheen you'd only expect to see in movies from the other side of the Atlantic. My favourite part is that even though it's got the makings of a serious drama, the dialogue is a smart and hilarious ode to the Québécois language that makes no apologies for not being from France. Quite honestly, my favourite Canadian film from the last 10 years.
