Slow moving but compelling, this 2005 Canadian mystery concerns a handsome young man who awakens naked in a Montreal parking lot with his memory erased, knowing only that he's gay. As he strives to reclaim his past, support comes from staffers at a gay help line, who draw media attention to his case with surprising and troubling results. Dusan Dukic is excellent as the enigmatic hero, and writer-director Denis Langlois uses the fact-based story to consider how identity is shaped by social relationships and expectations. In English and subtitled French. 90 min.
