Descripción del producto
25 de diciembre de 1960: Nace Zachary Beaulieu, cuarto de cinco hermanos. Vive en el seno de una familia muy tranquila de los extrarradios, con una madre afectuosa y un padre un poco huraño, pero orgulloso de sus chicos. Es el principio de una bonita infancia en la que se suceden las navidades y los cumpleaños, las sesiones de lavado de coche al aire libre y las visitas a un merendero con Zac, el favorito de su padre. Así empieza C.R.A.Z.Y. el relato de un niño, y luego el de un adolescente diferente que renegará de su naturaleza más profunda para no perder el amor de su padre.

That's why I don't even group this movie with gay cinema. It's a terrific movie about Family from the point of view of one of five children, who happens to be gay. The film is really more about family ties and seeking approval, though it's often lumped in with "gay cinema", it transcends it.
The budget for the music rights in this film was well worth it... without Sympathy For The Devil by the Rolling Stones, the scene in the church would never have been as powerful and profound.
Buy this film, and you will be supporting an AMAZING project.
I think the actress who played the mother provided one of the best performances I have seen in years. In the scene following the funeral where son and father embrace in a desperate effort to recreate a damaged relationship, the mother's reaction is one of the most touching moments I have ever seen on film. So simple, so understated, so moving.
I think the father's performance was outstanding also. The actor who played Zac would probably win the viewer's poll as the best performance in the movie, and that choice would probably be pooh-poohed by those who consider themselves critics above the pack. But on reflection, I think he did a laudable job of holding his centerpiece performance in check. It would have been so easy to overdo it and lose the realism he achieved.
Taken on the whole, every performance was so natural, so real, so convincing, that I find myself wondering how the surviving Beaulieus are doing today.
None of those performances could have been realized without a screenplay and direction that resounds with truth.
In another sense, this movie is like a painting. It is perfectly symmetrical. There is the forced march through the blizzard and the flight across the searing desert. There is the marijuana shotgun and the asthma inhaler. In every event in the film, there is balance not only of circumstance, but also of significance. The mystical elements of the healing powers and the religious faith are balanced by the gritty realism of the family conflicts and the post-pubertal priapism. What a powerful way to emphasize the symbolic as well as the real identities of the characters.
The symbolism is as playful as it is serious. From the twin smokestacks to the use of the inhaler, the symbols appear exactly when and where they should.
The soundtrack is very near perfect. I have heard it compared to the music from Trainspotting, but it really isn't fair to compare the Trainspotting soundtrack to that of C.R.A.Z.Y. In the former case, the extraordinary soundtrack must not stray from the relatively direct path the film follows. In the latter, there is no direct path, rather a serendipitous wandering that imitates life. If C.R.A.Z.Y. were constructed like Trainspotting, then the casual viewer would remember only the Stones and Bowie and Floyd. But it isn't. Therefore, the choices of Cline and Aznavour for natural and that ethereal Sheremetiev chant for supernatural are spot on. The L'Elisir d'Amore aria playing behind (and in front of) the drunken brawl at the family Christmas table was pure art. A choice every bit as superb as the choice of Lou Reed's "Perfect Day" in Trainspotting.
Turn off the phone and watch this film.
Here's a film trip downright engineered to dig up / dredge out memories of times with "Dad".......times in car washing driveways, times of just-you-two car rides-----"connecting times" you'd thought....you'd hoped......but maybe not. And for many of us, other not so happy memories perhaps raising their ugly heads-----yet even for that we've got to say: Thank you, Director Vallee.
Sudden inspiration!......did YOU catch it: Cote's "Dad" and Grondin's "Zac" are the 2-sides of the same coin. The two of them are more alike than any other 2 family members shown in this film. Sadly, how many wasted years and how much heartache til they found that out and, eventually, owned up to it. Repeating, I believe a lot of "Dad's" 'problem' was that he sometimes realized he was a great deal more like "Zac" (or vice versa) than he was comfortable with. That's when their relationship would 'cycle down.' Ah, poor "Zac," how does one cope with that? Took him a very long time to figure out how to do so, didn't it?
Finally, one thing truly stands out for me, and that is how very difficult it has to be for an, essentially, first-time theatrical film actor to, let's face it, carry a 2+ hour movie.........this being Grondin's first ever film since reaching teenage. And as a final thought about Marc-Andre, why not admit it: what an amazing kid; even more, what a great 'package'.......what a gorgeous ass! What more could Grondin want from life?
PS--I'll tell you this---I'm gonna buy anything of Grondin's work that comes along. And Marc-Andre: if you're seeking an immigration sponsor, look no farther; I'm here.
bealieau. All this coupled with AAAA+ soundtrack that I stole off a file sharing server the same day made for a moving experience: For this American.
