A dramatization of the Montreal Polytechnical School shooting of 1989, as seen through the eyes of two students. Expert direction and superb performances throughout.
Novel camera placement and movement. A faithful recreation of the events that left a permanent scar on Canadian society and raised many questions concerning gun control, violence in the media, feminism and women’s rights.
Free of political, emotional and social constraints. Contemplative and thought provoking.
Sad, yet beautiful. A must see film from one of Canada’s greatest film auteurs, Denis Villeneuve.
