It seems that everything is same as before but something big changes forever even if life goes on ...

The story focuses on a moral that is put a little too severely for what it is with tradgedies along the way but else, it is very well shot and thought of (screenplay).

I found this movie awfully bad. The actions were long, if you can call it actions, because nothing is moving, nothing is happening. When you're making a movie, you have the power to make something big, unusual things, or to move from actions to actions. But in this movie, those opportunities are not taken, it's boring and terribly long. Only good thing is Gilbert Sicotte, truly deserved his Jutra, even if is character is kind of annoying, we can see he's a great actor and did a great job.

This is a chronicle, so not much is going on. The background is interesting though and the main character fits well in this universe. The main problem though, is that Sebatien Pilote seems afraid to keep his film on the chosen path and adds predictable and annoying events to keep the story moving. Still, it's got interesting themes and it is pretty good. Gilbert Sicotte gives the performance of his career.

Jutra 2012. Histoire morose tenue à bout de bras par la grande performance de Gilbert Sicotte.

Un excellent film, lent et deprimant (ca va avec le sujet), sur le drame des regions eloignees du Quebec qui vivent et meurent avec une seule industrie qui fournit les emplois dans les villages. Gilbert Sicotte est excellent en vendeur de voitures qui voit son monde changer quand les difficultes des travailleurs a l'usine affectent sa vie directement, avec des consequences tragiques. Triste, tres triste. Et les paysages hivernaux brutaux rendent ca encore pire. Bien content de vivre a Montreal finalement ;).

Touchante introspection... Pilote filme l'hiver comme si c'était un personnage qui fabrique à lui seul toute la lourdeur qui entoure le drame du quotidien.... Le drame de la solitude. Brillant.

Really showned how the world economy can affect small towns like Mistassini when after the 2008 economical crisis the paper mill finally closed. A crisis showing that it's always better to diversify the source of your local economy in order to survive adversity.
The crisis a man faces because his job is all for him.

Je cote 2 Ã (C)toiles... sur 5! (Bof)
"Le Vendeur" nous brosse un tableau peu reluisant de la vie en rà (C)gion : morne, grise et ringarde au possible. Les longueurs se succèdent à un point tel qu'on se demande où toute cette histoire du quotidien banal du "vendeux de char" Marcel Là (C)vesque va mener. Mais il faut donner à Gilbert Sicotte ce qui lui revient : son jeu est convaincant, impeccable.
