5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic work of art! Sept. 22 2009
Format:DVD
I usually don't write reviews for sites like amazon, but seeing that this film only had one rating that had nothing to do with the film made me think I had to. This is a beautiful film. If you have seen Maelstrom, you will know Denis Villeneuve's style of filmmaking, although this is really quite different. This film tells the story of two ill-fated individuals who were at the college when the infamous events happened. It conveys a very emotional story with very little dialogue and a beautiful cinematographic black-and-white style. In fact, the lack of colour somehow adds much more to the events transpiring. On a final note, I think it's important to mention that the characters are, for the most part, composites, the killer is never named and the families of the victims gave their approval to the film. In conclusion, I have seen about 20 films in 2009 (I am selective, so there was very little intentional crap) and at the 9 month mark, Polytechnique is still the best 2009 film I've seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars THERE CAN BE BEAUTY IN HORROR July 31 2010
Format:DVD
The École Polytechnique Massacre of 1989 is an event that people still have trouble grappling with. On the one hand, there is the motivations of the shooter, Marc Lepine. He wrote his reasons for his actions in his rambling manifesto. But apart from Lepine's supposed political motivations, it is difficult to understand the incident. Why was Lepine allowed to get as far as he did? Why did the male students not help the female victims? And was the Massacre just a larger demonstration of the violence (explicit and implied) that happens to women every day? The movie Polytechnique doesn't try to explain and point fingers in this terrible drama. All it presents is as best a representation as possible of what happened. Presenting the movie in black and white makes the movie more effective and beautiful to watch. In moments of such terror, everything become hyper-real. Black and White allows for that hyperreality to exist: every shadow, highlighted edge, actor's performance, and displayed emotion strikes that much more powerfully. The performances are excellent through, and the ending strikes a hopeful chord. This is a movie everyone must see.

It's a horrible thing that this and so many others like it happen.

It helps us see how lucky we are to be alive.
