The film is deceptive, seemingly presenting us with a first-timer's look at LARPing (live-action role-playing) that comes off as some sort of comedic culture shock until night falls and the dark underbelly of the players are revealed. How far would you go to save someone who doesn't want saving? How far would you go to keep your fantasies alive? You can only watch in shock as the film and its characters swiftly devolve into madness, leaving you completely numbed by the experience. A great film.

This wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, it is far from being good. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

This movie was not done well at all. This movie was terrible “Dumb, boring and stupid.” Waste of time waste and of Electrical power.

This movie tried very hard to fail. From a very fun start it slowed down and the pace was at times a problem. However, if you really give this movie a chance, it is pretty satisfying. The ending is great. Basically, this is if LARP went unbelieveably wrong.

This film had a comedic start, mediocre development and then a brutal ending. A very disturbing film.

I felt characters were running around a lots but there is nothing really happening except the last scene.

Dark, romantic, original, imaginative thriller in which the boundaries between escapist fantasy & reality become blurred in the course of an adult medieval reenactment game. This promising first feature by quebecois director Alexandre Fanchi was shot with a talented young cast in Duché de Bicolline, an actual site for staging such games near Shawinigan, Quebec. Unfortunately, the problem is that the film’s cheap & hasty production values & its surplus of inept, inarticulate characters are going to turn off a lot of viewers who prefer a more sophisticated presentation. It impressed me anyway, & even approximated poetry in places.
