A well-made, inspirational effort that beautifully conveys its period and milieu.

Every bit as single-minded as its French-Canadian protagonist, pic drowns a potentially interesting story in careful literalism and elaborate period detail.

Overriding any such quibbles is Dupuis' utterly immersed performance and the film's sheer visual beauty. Aside from director Binamé's other talents, he actually makes hockey play comprehensible.

Sure, it has all of the elements of an underdog tale that has been done time and time again, but it ultimately becomes so much more.
