Musical and Visual Coming of Age Story

by Jean-Marc Vallée

C.R.A.Z.Y. is a wonderful film from Québec that tells the story of Zac, born on Christmas day 1960, and follows his journey as he grows up and deals with his family, including 4 brothers and his mother and father. Filled with great music and a luscious visual style along with elements of magical realism, it’s fun and moving at the same time. The script cleverly weaves together the story of the family (with the brothers initials forming C.R.A.Z.Y.) along with Zac figuring out who he is and how to relate to his family.
