Quebecer scenarists looks like they are now all fascinated by boringness
16 May 2017 | by jpgougouhSee all my reviews

Oh my... another long and fake profound movie from north American Quebecers. It seems that these recent years countless movie creators from Quebec have been fascinated by the idea that a movie must have fake deepness in it to be good for the viewers. They use long and useless texts between actors to achieve that, and sometimes they even just do nothing. It looks like they really want us to be capture how "deep" or I must say rather "boring" the lives of the actors are, this movie is no exception to this approach. Long, dull, false deepness. Acting that is more dull than any moment of my entire existence. It could feel like a prison where the viewers are forced to wait and feel all the boring "numbness" of every moments in the movie.

Again: Recent Quebecer scenarists looks like they are now fascinated by boringness. It must give a profound vibe to their boring movies
