Missed shot to denounce political corruption and tycoon influence.
14 January 2019 | by RealLiveClaudeSee all my reviews

This Quebec movie wanted to denounce and laugh about entrepreneurship, tycoon influence on governments and corruption.

This story of a loser, Bossé, who with his close friend, does everything to keep afloat from his main competitor De Carufel, who did scam him once. However, on the way, misteps brings him to an inquiry commission, accusing him of influencing and corrupting government bodies. And the competitors are watching. This is told via flashbacks as in the present, Bossé is in a coma due to a severe accident and his wife want to unplug him. Only his close friend might save his life...

Despite all the efforts done, movie is a bit confusing and the use of matched colors during the movie are tiresome. Real industry tycoons made appearances as well as a famous Quebec writer...

Then again, not worth the money to watch this painful movie...
