Movie propaganda

Magical, mystical, demure but sexy, funny, touching and ever so crazy...

25 December 1960: Zachary Beaulieu comes into the world, fourth in a family of five boys. An ordinary suburban family with a loving mother (Danielle Proulx) and a dad who's a bit gruff (Michel Côté) but proud of his sons. The beginning of a beautiful childhood, where Christmases and birthdays follow one after the other to the ubiquitous solo of the elder Beaulieu singing Aznavour's Emmène-moi au bout de la terre, washing the car in the fresh air and trips to the snack-bar for Zac, his father's favourite. But not for long, alas!

That's the lead-in to Crazy (C.R.A.Z.Y.), the story of a special little boy who grows into young manhood and ends up even denying his inner self to attract his father's attention.

A portrait of a family that depicts the often-extraordinary lives of ordinary people in search of happiness.

From 1960 to 1980, surrounded by his brothers, Pink Floyd and the Rolling Stones, between motorbike escapades to impress the girls, cigarettes smoked in secret, minor and not-so-minor disagreements and, particularly, a father that he searches desperately to find, Zac relates his story. Through music and rebellion, and also with humour, down to a mystical voyage to Jerusalem - "to the ends of the earth" as his father was always singing - where perhaps in such a far-away place he finally succeeds in finding him...
