5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER on June 24 2007
Format: DVD
Came across this movie the other day and thought it was great. I clearly understand why it got the recognition and the awards that it did. Clocking in a little over two hours C.R.A.Z.Y. is a little over long but embedded in that lengthy run time is a near flawless film. And, really, considering how finely wrought and beautifully performed all of Vallee's characters are I don't think I could have brought myself to cut a single frame out either, had I been in his shoes.

In here we have Zac, who is a sensitive young boy growing up in a large Catholic Quebecois family in the late Sixties. He is "different," something his mother explains, with the guidance of the mystic "tupperware lady," as a gift for healing peoples' burns by thinking about them. But Zac is uncomfortable with the fact that he doesn't like normal boys stuff, and feels constantly put upon by his three elder brothers. At Christmas, which happens also to be his birthday, he wants a baby carriage, but his dad insists on buying an ice hockey game. His mother objects, but dad gets his way. More than anything else Zac wants to be accepted by his devoted, but gruff dad. At night, Zac prays to God that he doesn't turn into a "fairy", but the feelings don't go away. Spanning a period of 21 years from 1960 to 1981, it captures the flavor of the era through such defining touchstones as drug use and the music of David Bowie, Pink Floyd and the Rolling Stones. Rather than following a set formula, the script frequently veers off into unexpected paths and by-ways, making it appear less theatrical in nature and more like real life.

C.R.A.Z.Y. is more then what it seems.

If you grew up at a similar time (late seventies), this movie is something you will be able to fully relate to. Growing up in Quebec, Zac is the "Z" in C.R.A.Z.Y. He has 4 other brothers, a controlling father, and a very sympathetic mother. But don't worry, the mother wears the pants in the family, and she puts the father in his place several times throughout the twists and turns in this plot. We follow Zac through high school, girlfriends, boyfriends, and a trip to the holy land, in order to find his true self. If you would like to know what it was like growing up back then, its a terrific historical account of what the mood was at the time, and how far we've come. Marc-Andre Grondin's performance is so authentic, as he plays Zac from his early teens into his early twenties...with the help of wardrobe, makeup, and evolving hairdos. This is an outstanding film if you can get beyond the subtitles and you will find yourself watching it again and again. Jason Sloane, see Listmania GayGreatest25

This is an awesome French Canadian film. It's very unique. Both funny and dramatic and I would suggest this to any of my friends. This version works well with great picture and sound quality.

Canadian Radiance And Zestful Youth Jan. 14 2007
By Connoisseur Rat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Canadian Radiance And Zestful Youth? No, that's not what C.R.A.Z.Y. actually stands for in this luminescent coming of age story from north of the border, but it's a pretty good description of my feelings about it. And though I know many people out there think they might not be able to relate to a story about growing up gay in Montreal in the 60's 70's and 80's, I will spend the rest of this review trying to encourage you to see it anyway.

Because a great movie is a great movie. I mean, some films are so exhilarating that they transcend their subject matter. They are so deep that you can get lost in them, whether they reflect your experience or not. And this is such a film.

For the record, this movie at its core is about an asthmatic chain-smoking teen (brilliantly played by Marc-Andre Grondin, who strikes me as a French-Canadian River Phoenix) struggling to please and appease his father, his Father (i.e. God), society, and himself by fighting against who he was born to be.

But it's the fringes, the edges, and the ornamentation that makes this cinematic journey so worth taking. The images, the editing, the score... it's the little touches - the recurring themes and images, repeated over time as we skip through twenty years of life, vividly illustrating that the more things change, the more they stay the same.

This film is so wonderful I just basked in its warmth, trying to absorb as much as I could. I'm sure it will hold up to repeated viewings, and I look forward to seeing it again soon (possibly right after I write these words).

Bold, Powerful & Captivating Brilliance April 11 2007
By drakkar91 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Crazy is a triumph in film making! The movie, beautifully directed and acted is about family and faith. It's the R rated version of the television classic "The Wonder Years" - albeit with more of an edge and gritty appeal.

The film setting is Canada, starting in 1960 and ending in the early 1980's. The viewer is part of the growing up of Zac, the 4th son of a middle-class family with typical hard-working Father and stay at home Mom.

From birth to adulthood, we feel the angst of the father-son relationship as it becomes clear Zac is not like the "other boys". For anyone who grew up (and attempted to come out of the closet) in the 1970's and 80's, this is a must see film.

The story explodes on the screen. Transistion between time periods is extraordinary. This is first and foremost a film about family, about growing up, about faith and religion. It also happens to be about life. The sexuality of the main character is a mere part of this incredible journey.

There was absolutely nothing I disliked about the film, and it has already achieved status with some of my all-time favorite films. This is not another stereo-typical coming-of-age drama. This one stands out from the crowd, way out.

The DVD itself features the movie trailer; the film is in French with English subtitles.

A must see.

If you have seen any of the following films, then you should certainly enjoy Crazy.

"What's a fairy?" Feb. 1 2007

Rather than following a set formula, the script frequently veers off into unexpected paths and by-ways, making it appear less theatrical in nature and more like real life.

C.R.A.Z.Y. is more then what it seems. The story is as much about looking for paternal acceptance, as the sexual confusion of a boy turning into a man, which probably is why it has been so widely appealing. Director Jean-Marc Vallee, who casts his own son as the [..]boy Zac (Emile Vallee), and Marc-Andre Grondin as the [...]Zac, is careful not to screen anything that would turn off mainstream audiences. At the same, this is a film of emotional depth, humor and intelligent exploration of its subject. C.R.A.Z.Y. deserved my laughter and my tears... as well as the crazy amount of awards that it has received. Recommended to those who are interested in a well-conceived family melodrama.

Good film from Quebec Feb. 26 2007
By Edward Aycock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
An enjoyable film about the life of a family with great acting, cinematograpy and period details. I do think that it dragged a bit during the last half an hour. Also, despite being a movie where a large part is about the character coming to terms with himself and his sexuality, the movie is rather timid when it comes to any onscreen depictions of homsexuality. As seems to be all too often in films that deal with gay themes, the characters always tend to have their heterosexual relations get more screentime. In this case, it was with the homely girl next door, a move that didn;t even seem entirely plausible.

That said, this is a great depiction of a large Quebecois family. You'll never listen to Patsy Cline in the same way again.

Hits you deep down Jan. 9 2007
By Frieslander - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is an excellent movie that sticks with you long after watching it. CRAZY takes you into the lives of a devout Catholic, blue-collar family in suburban Montreal. The movie not only makes you feel like part of the family, it takes you back in time with an excellent soundtrack and with carefully placed details that show you 'la vie quebecoise.' This is a tastefully done coming-of-age story with superb character development.
