Canadian director Philippe Falardeau toys with coincidence, contrivance, and near-mystical encounters in this comic drama with as many twists of fate as there are twists of plot. When Michel (Olivier Gourmet), a failed Belgian inventor, discovers he was adopted, he sets off to find his birth parents in Canada. There he encounters Louis (Paul Ahmarani), a kindred spirit who has much in common with Michel. "...dramatic, ingenious, sensitive..." (Michel Coulombe, Radio-Canada). With Jean-Pierre Cassel and Gabriel Arcand. In French with English subtitles.
