A strangely-captivating motion picture.
I felt alive when I was watching it.
A disturbing, imaginative, beautifully realized film.
It tries too hard, and Leolo's Gauloisey voice-over tells us too much.
Caught the big picture in a strikingly fresh way.
French-Canadian Lauzon's disturbing and audacious comin-of-age saga, which opened the 1993 Toronto Film Festival, centers on a boy who actually believes that his mother was impregnated by a sperm-covered tomato in Sicily!
The best Quebecois movie ever made.
A visionary yet profoundly disturbing masterpiece about a young boy's rites-of-passage into adult life.
For a movie where defecating and masturbation have a surprising amount of screen time, this is a very whimsical and funny story about a dysfunctional family just trying to make it out alive. The script does a very good job of showing the world through the eyes of a young boy, accurately capturing the desperate nature with which we try to make sense of the world.
Canadian boy comes of age in nutty family. A strange film, a bit like watching something by a sedated Jean-Pierre Jeunet, with a heartbreaking ending.
From RHADYNASCIMENTO's favourites list
Because I dream, I am not.
A fantastic Canadian film, in both quality and content. Strange though, but in that lovely sort of way that draws you in. Basically it's the story of a highly intelligent boy growing up in a tenement in Montreal with his oddball, mostly insane, family, and the imaginary living dream world he creates for himself which is often hard to distinguish from reality. This is one of those poetic sort of films that are magical in a way, and hard to define, breathtaking at times, confusing at times, also - but ultimately rewarding. In any case, it`s a truly unique film that should be seen by an anyone with an appreciation for "off the beaten path" type films.
