AVANT QU'ON EXPLOSE
Living in Baie-Saint-Paul, Pier-Luc (Étienne Galloy) learns that a North Korean submarine has been torpedoed by the Americans. Terrified by the imminent outbreak of the Third World War and reckoning with his own looming death, the young man decides to do whatever it takes to lose his virginity. He will be joined on his quest by two loyal friends, Hubert and Samuel. More than a Québécois answer to Superbad or American Pie, this first feature by Rémi St-Michel reveals astonishing sensitivity and a strong sense of pacing. Beneath its coarse surface is a touching comedy about teen angst, with a protagonist who’s adorably awkward.
