Magical, mystical, demure but sexy, funny, touching, and ever so crazy...
December 25, 1960: Zachary Beaulieu comes into the world, fourth in a family of five boys. An ordinary suburban family with a loving mother and a dad who's a bit gruff, but proud of his sons. The beginning of a beautiful childhood, where Christmases and birthdays follow one after the other to the ubiquitous solo of the elder Beaulieu singing Aznavour's Emmène-moi au bout de la terre, washing the car in the fresh air and trips to the snack-bar for Zac, his father's favourite. But not for long, alas!
That's the lead-in to C.R.A.Z.Y., the story of a special little boy who grows into young manhood and ends up even denying his inner self to attract his father's attention.
A portrait of a family that depicts the often-extraordinary lives of ordinary people in search of happiness.
From 1960 to 1980, surrounded by his brothers, Pink Floyd and the Rolling Stones, between motorbike escapades to impress the girls, cigarettes smoked in secret, minor and not-so-minor disagreements and, particularly, a father that he searches desperately to find, Zac relates his story. Through music and rebellion, and also with humour, down to a mystical voyage to Jerusalem"to the ends of the earth" as his father was always singingwhere perhaps in such a far-away place he finally succeeds in finding him...
A gripping tale from the creator of "Liste noire", Jean-Marc Vallée, starring Michel Côté, one of Quebec's leading actors ("Le Dernier tunnel", "Sur le seuil", "Cruising Bar"). Also starring Danielle Proulx and Marc-André Grondin, and introducing Émile Vallée.
C.R.A.Z.Y. A love story between a father and a son. A mystical and whimsical fable on the human soul, beautiful, foolish and lyrical.
A middle-class teenage misfit living in '70s era Montreal dreams of abandoning his familiar hometown surroundings to seek a brighter future in director Jean-Marc VallÃ©e's character-driven drama. A sexually-confused Christmas Day baby who likes to march to the beat of his own drummer, Zachary Beaulieu (Marc-Andre Grondin) nevertheless longs to live up to his old-fashioned father's (Michel Cote) decidedly more traditional expectations. As Zachary seeks solace in the sounds of Pink Floyd and David Bowie, his mother assures him that he's bound for greater things and testosterone-fueled siblings raise hell around the house. Despite feeling bound by his comparatively normal surroundings, the revelations provided by David Bowie's "Space Oddity" allows the disheartened Zachary the luxury of dreaming. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Now i had the same problem has everyone else in regards to the subtitles not working, but i found out how to get them to work.
Do as follow
let the movie play, press pop up menu on your remote control.
Go to Langues, turn francais 5.1 sound on.
Turn english subtitles on
Subtitles now work
This movie is so amazing, i just love it. Marc-Andre Grondin is an amazing actor! and SO HOT!!!!
To refresh the hint, here's the excerpt I borrowed from Jeremy's review below:
Do as follows:
1) start the movie and just let it play and then, press Pop-up Menu on your remote control.
2) Go to Langues, turn Francais 5.1 sound on.
3) Turn english subtitles on
Subtitles now work.
You may have two listings of "Francais". In my menu I see it that way, first without the 5.1 and then below it, "Francais 5.1". Once selected, the next thing was to select English Subtitles, ensuring it's "on". Then resume playing the movie, and the subtitles should hopefully show up -- they did for me, and I have a SONY BDP-S5100 Bluray player (which is also excellent, just a bit difficult to find everything in the menus/setups). The Pop-Up option is what brought up the required menu, as indicated in Step 1.
This is a superb movie with a great message and realistic performances and heartfelt emotions. Powerful, enjoyable to the utmost, and likely a favourite for gay men in particular and/or straight folks who have gay loved ones. Coming from the province of Quebec myself, I really enjoyed the attention to detail of the period in which the storyline is set.
Thanks to Jeremy though, for the tip which saved me from returning the disc!
Beau scénario, excellents acteurs (Michel Côté est sublime), ce film très touchant sur la vie de famille, sur l'identité et sur l'homosexualité post révolution tranquille (disons-le puisque le film fut sans cesse commercialisé sans mentionner cet élément pilier du scénario) fera vivre des émotions à tous.
Bon film !

C.R.A.Z.Y. was my favorite film of 2005, the year that Crash and Brokeback Mountain dominated the Academy Awards. C.R.A.Z.Y. never received a proper theatrical release in the U.S. Read morePublished on May 11 2009 by Jerry
