Truly excellent, unique and unpredictable, not a formula film at all.
5 December 2005 | by kmgordeySee all my reviews

"The French Guy" is unique. It is unpredictable, one never knows from one moment to the next what is going to happen. It is funny, gruesome, poignant, and engaging all the way through. The production values are very high. The performances, particularly those of the lead actors, Babz Chula and Tygh Runyan, are compelling. I saw this film at the Whistler Film Festival recently and I imagine it will be touring the festival circuit. I highly recommend that you highlight this one in your program if you come across it or catch it on DVD when it becomes available. It will work well in either medium although I enjoyed the richness of the theater experience. Ann Marie Fleming, the director/writer/producer meets Einstein's definition of a genius. She sees what everyone one else has seen and thinks what no one else has thought. Then she goes and makes this wonderful movie.
