CGiii Comment

A “semiautobiographical experimental narrative shows a privileged young filmmaker named Claude who is passionately involved with a black model named Johanne, who suddenly guesses that he likes boys. He strolls with Johanne up the Mountain, the famous gay cruising area, where he fantasizes that the couple is attacked by a leatherman biker. Johanne gets pregnant, Claude dumps her, and the relationship dissolves in narcissism, rejection, and bitterness.” As exciting as that sounds, it's a nouvelle vague masterpiece and Canada's first explicitly gay-themed feature film that will conjure a Quebecois Truffaut or Cassavettes.
