Product Description

From the Studio

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 singing–where 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 Vallée'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

5.0 out of 5 stars Vive le cinéma québécois Oct. 28 2005
Un magnifique exemple de la qualité de cinéma québécois contemporain. Un film touchant, traitant encore une fois, mais de façon remarquable, de la relation père-fils. Une film surfant des années 60 à 80 en respectant minutieusement les particularités de chaque époque, nous faisant réellement croire que les scènes furent tournées durant les années respectives.
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 !

5.0 out of 5 stars Subtitles Hint for a Terrific Movie Nov. 23 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Thanks to reviewer Jeremy from Australia, I was able to get the subtitles to work for English, after going 'crazy' myself trying to figure out what was wrong when the settings would not seem to keep or take my selection for subtitles.

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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Movie March 9 2009
I watched this movie last year for the first time on DVD. I missed it when it premiered in South Florida at the Miami Film Festival in 2007. And I could have kicked myself after reading Robert Rodriguez's review in the Miami Herald. This is a bittersweet look at a large suburban family, with a particular focus on the burgeoning sexuality of the main character, Zack, the family's most colorful character, although not altogether the only colorful character. In truth, all the people in the film have their own nuances and peculiarities that make C.R.A.Z.Y. a most compelling piece of cinema. It is a well-wrought out and thoughtful examination of the strains that someone being truly different puts on the entire family, but it is also a celebration of the rebellion of youth, the miracle of finding oneself, and the ultimate familial love that conquers even the most apparently insurmountable differences. The music in the film is extraordinary and, while adding a wonderful and exact touch of nostalgia, carries the movie through a couple of decades of popular history from the anonymous perspective of a unique nucleus: the family. This movie is an even-handed, sometimes heartbreaking, reflection on individuality, togetherness, and love. A must-see for fans of coming-of-age tales that aren't afraid to delve into all the ramifications of one character's growth into maturity. The blu-ray version of the movie looks absolutely STUNNING and has plenty of extras. At the listed price here on Amazon.ca, it is well-worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars The love of a Mother and Father March 14 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
C.R.A.Z.Y. is a rare film. Wonderful, comic, beautiful, poetic, tragic, and more- it effectively captures the cultural norms and social atmosphere of Montreal in the late 70s. More important, it tells the story of a suburban, working class family and their confrontation with the most formidable of challenges that could threaten any family's stability. Brutally honest, morally visceral, and cleverly presented, C.R.A.Z.Y. will alter the meaning of the word, permanently, for anyone who is willing to accept that the most important foundations of family are love and acceptance.

We don't learn why it's C.R.A.Z.Y. instead of CRAZY until the end of the movie, but there are clues.

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 more

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. Read more
