Good job Boss!
7 February 2004 | by LeRoyMarkoSee all my reviews

Could be based on a true story. It's real life drama. The owner of a little independent gas station tries to make life better for his 4 grown-ups. But life's not easy when you have too much of a big heart. Being too good isn't always helpful.

I just loved the characters in this film. My favorite one is Mr. Savard, one of the guys who hang out at the gas bar. It's a picture taken of a real life small business in a low income neighborhood of Montréal. Serge Thériault is doing a good job, as usual.

Out of 100, I gave it 82. That's good for *** out of ****.

Seen in Toronto, at the Royal Cinema, on February 7th, 2004.
