A warm-hearted if predictable rites-of-passage movie, enlivened by some surreal flourishes and a stomping glam soundtrack.

If Brokeback Mountain was the bleak gay drama of 2005 that all audiences could enjoy, then another 2005 feature, the equally heterosexually enjoyable C.R.A.Z.Y., puts the colour back in the adjective 'gay'.

The French Canadian import is also wildly entertaining in its views of Catholicism, music and especially family.

C.R.A.Z.Y. goes far beyond what could have simply been a coming of age story. Director Jean-Marc Vallée delves beneath all the complex layers that unite and divide a family.

Even though the ending feels a little rushed, and some of the brothers are more sketches than characters, this is a family it's impossible not to like.

An exuberant, disarming entertainment, C.R.A.Z.Y. makes a familiar story seem new all over again through its sheer showmanship, sharp humor and a wise, profound understanding of the highs and lows of family ties.

The subject matter may be deep and the family conflicts serious, but Vallée leavens his story with gentle satire and outright humour.

A full-to-bursting picture that shouts and whispers and darts and meanders and fascinates and frustrates and teems at the seams with raw vitality.
