A Day Without A Mexican
One morning, California wakes up to find that one-third of its population -- the Hispanic third -- has disappeared. A strange pink fog envelops the state, and communication outside its boundaries is completely cut off. The economic, political and social implications of this disaster threaten California's way of life, and for a group of disparate people (all white, except for one Latina), the cracks in their private lives are forced wide open.

(fr) wrote: The sacrament makes the most of it's intriguing themes and inspiration with some creepy atmosphere and intelligent script. Although it definitely won't appeal to everyone.
(nl) wrote: "Cafe de Flore" is an endearing and thought provoking movie that wonders if some things are always meant to be. Jumping back and forth skillfully between two different storylines, including one that is unstuck in time, the movie does a good job of connecting the dots in a figurative sense. But when it comes to literally doing so, it could be said to resolve events too neatly for such complicated emotions. In a straightforward narrative set in 1960's Paris, Jacqueline(Vanessa Paradis) is left to being a single mother after she refuses to give up her newborn son Laurent(Marin Gerrier) with Down Syndrome and her husband lacks the balls to stand by her. So, she becomes his advocate and knight in shining armor, doing research on not only extending his life, but also giving him a better quality of life by mainstreaming him at school. At first, Antoine(Kevin Parent), a popular club DJ, and Rose(Evelyne Brochu) seem to be living the perfect life with their daughters in present day Montreal. As one could tell by their still rambunctious sex life and confirmed later, Rose and Antoine have not been together for long. In high school, Antoine met Carole(Helene Florent), sharing a mutual love for music and falling deeply in love with each other. So, it should not come as a surprise that Carole is bitter over the breakup, even as she shares custody of the girls, and suffers from sleepwalking and a questionable taste in books. At the same time, Antoine is a recovering addict, not only having to deal with his own demons, but those he inherited from his father(Michel Dumont), himself an alcoholic.

(nl) wrote: [35/D-] A lame, washed-out slapstick about a man undergoing a middle-age crisis. Insipid production. It banks on a fair amount of momentary T&A, and needs to because the direction and photography are pretty atrocious, looking like a bad hangover feels. One can begin to understand the peculiar mediocrity of this movie when one considers that Brian Dennehy almost dominates the latter part of the movie with his small role as a bartender, but by that time Bo Derek has arrived regularly on screen, and the film has taken a favourable turn anyway. Her character does manage to inject some life into the cadaverous flaccidity of 10, and give Moore something better to do than stumble and bumble around for forty-five minutes. It's all far too little, far too late, of course.

What it does have is incredible camerawork, huge set pieces, melodrama, and tension. The massacre of civilians on the Odessa Steps is especially well shot, with a variety of closeups and long shots, as well as panning shots following the soldiers and their hail of bullets down the stairs. The scenes are shocking, violent, melodramatic, and gigantic in scope.The plot/history reenactment is relatively simple: sailors refuse to eat the borscht full of rancid, maggot infested meat. When the officers decide to make an example of several sailors, the sailors rise up against them and take over the ship, just as revolution begins to spread across Russia.
