Simon’s review published on Letterboxd:
You wanna know what makes the critics and the movie graduates hard in a french canadian movie?
-Swearing (all the time)
-Laughing for no reason
-A (some kind) of artsy scene
-Music from the 90’s
-A crying mother
If you have done that, congrats you are a french canadian artist.
This movie lacks originality, from it’s story to it’s visuals to it’s actor choice. I have seen Antoine Desrochers a probability of 10 times this year, or in a movie or on tv. Meanwhile we can’t get a latina actress to play a latina character on the Québec adaptation of Brooklyn 99!
A woman in the theater was crying behind me, I was like why!? No one is even charming enough to be cried about! To be honest, I wanted all of them to suffer from an overdose (call me heartless I don’t care) those characters didn’t deserve a hint of attention.
I know I’m rough with the movie but that’s because I care so much about my culture, my cinema! So when I see bullshit like this, it makes me very mad.
