Reception[edit]

The film won the 2010 Main Award of Mannheim-Heidelberg at the 59th International Filmfestival Mannheim-Heidelberg.[1] At the 2010 International Film Festival Bratislava, the film won the FIPRESCI Jury Award and the Student Jury Award. For his role as Tommy, Robert Naylor won the award for Best Actor.[2] In a review for The Gazette in Montreal, Brendan Kelly called the film "gripping" and praised the performances of Claude Legault ("so good as Gilles") and Robert Naylor ("a revelation").[3] He noted, however, that due to the nature of the story, the film was "not much fun to watch".[3]
