Storyline

In Montréal, Jean-Pierre is fired on the set of a TV commercial where he's an apprentice technician. He's penniless, behind on his rent, with a thin resume and no college units. He has a fiancée, Michelle, but his head is turned by a free-spirited model, from the U.S., who saw him being fired and comes to his flat to apologize. She's Elizabeth, a combination of feckless innocence and sexual freedom. Jean-Pierre borrows money from his outlaw friend, Dock, and buys clothes to impress Elizabeth. Soon he's sleeping with her, and he pulls a theft with Dock to get money to take her to Acapulco. Michelle tries to bring him back to her orbit. Is there a way out for Jean-Pierre?

A great Canadian film, but that's not saying much
24 April 2001 | by shadock-2See all my reviews

Before the censors got a hold of it, this one was on late night Canadian TV a number of times. As Canadian late night pushed the bounds of nudity, this half-decent effort got a lot of airplay to help with the then fledgling Global network get its start.

PLOT POINTS TO FOLLOW - WARNING

Mind you, there wasn't a lot of nudity in this film. Moreover, the story is a good one. A French Canadian young man without a direction lives a life of crime with his girlfriend's brother. On a temporary job on a commercial shoot, he meets a beautiful young English Canadian woman (Susan Sarandon in a very early role) and they enter into a relationship. He tries to break it off with his old girlfriend, but she won't let him go. When he then tries to turn away his new girlfriend, he can't bring himself to do it. There is a tragic end to this love triangle as his life finally catches up to him. Don't expect a happy ending. Come to think of it, this is one of the few films in Canada to explore the difficulty of being a French Canadian from a political and economic standpoint, but how we all wind up getting along in the end.
