    Realisation percutante par Jean-Claude Lauzon dont c'etait le 1er long-metrage, et qui nous depeint ici un ''Montreal by night'' a la fois sensuel et sordide. Suivi de Leolo en 1992. Lauzon etait un des grands talents cinematographiques quebecois mais il est malheureusement decede d'un accident d'avion avant de realiser son 3e film.

    THIS won "Best Picture" at the Genies? what a load of shit. This film is a massive turd. Exploitative sex scenes, turgid dialogue and the most inane climax I can recall. Seriously, this film plays like a parody of Frech art films. I reiterate, anyone who claims to love this film is a twat.

    Well, I am disappointed. The fact is that I thought Un zoo la nuit would be as magic as Léolo (which is the greatest Quebec movie, to my opinion). It is not. But, Jean-Claude Lauzon's first movie is really good. It is about the relationship between a man and his father. The relation between the two protagonists is, for me, the most interesting element of the movie. Far from being bad. Far from Léolo.

    I really enjoyed this movie, I liked the story and thought it was a great look into Montreal underworld. Lauzon really gets into the sordidness of the French poorer classes like no body else.

    Pretentious nonsense about a drug addled gangster with sexual and family issues. Beautiful cinematography wasted on a tedious subject.

    Powerful acting by Roger Lebel, good indications of the directing talent of Lauzon.
