Une oeuvre étonnante de vivacité, d'ingéniosité et de truculence, pêchant malheureusement par de trop fréquentes ruptures de rythme et de ton, mais qui confirme et consacre tout de même le réalisateur, hélas aujourd'hui disparu, parmi les metteurs en scène canadiens qui resteront incontournables... www.cinefiches.com
As someone who lives here, I am always frustrated in just how masturbatory the films we make in Quebec are. My teacher hyped this up as the best film from here and it's junk. Seriously, impregnated by a tomato? All the characters are walking abominations that we are supposed to find charming. CHARMING MY ASS. It's a coward's film that refuses to look at these dilemmas in a mature way. WORTHLESS
"I dream therefore I'm not..." Lauzon's second and final picture is one of Canada's finest films. The script was imagination run wild with the same maverick spirit applied to the film's visual sense. Full of vibrant, unsettling images but with a melancholic but nostalgic and endearing feel to it as well. Casting was perfection especially the image of the maternal quebecois madre encaptured by Ginette Reno. Aces.
Beautiful and dreamlike. This wasn't the light hearted comedy the poster led me to expect it to be, but it was definitely enjoyable. But this was clearly a bold and ambitious undertaking. But it just goes too far with the cat scene. I have a pretty strong stomach, but that crossed a line for me. Worth watching, though.
