  • It's Not Me, I Swear!

    2008. Canada. Written and directed by Philippe Falardeau. Based on novels by Bruno Hébert. With Antoine L'Écuyer, Suzanne Clément, Daniel Briére, Catherine Faucher. The filmmaker who so impressed New Yorkers with Congorama in New Directors/New Films 2007 returns with a fast-moving, boisterous account of Léon, a young boy in 1960s suburban Montreal who seems to practice, with some cheer, serial attempts at suicide. His mother has always intervened, but eventually even she gets fed up with her harried existence. Soon Léon's wild behavior—and his relationship with the girl next door—head in truly unexpected directions. In French; English subtitles. 110 min.
