Léolo
(1992)

Country: Canada

Genre: Drama

IMDb

Synopsis

Young Leo Lauzon is torn between two worlds - the squalid Montreal tenement that he inhabits with his severely dysfunctional family, and the imaginative world that he constructs for himself through his writings, where he's Leolo Lozone, son of a Sicilian peasant (conceived in a bizarre act involving a tomato). His experiences of growing up (especially his sexual development) affect his response to both these worlds...

Dividing Bar

Without a shadow of a doubt, an extraordinary masterpiece, more a kind of cinematic poem than a conventional film, but with a strong narrative and clearly delineated characters. Coming from a non-Anglophone culture (Québécois), the film evinces a frank recognition of juvenile sexuality, as the prepubescent Léolo (Maxime Collin) compulsively masturbates using various aids to stimulation. Many of the characters and events are based on director Claude Lauzon's own childhood.
