The best time to walk out on this faux-poignant jumblefuck of nonsense is during the opening credits, when hunky club DJ Antoine (Kevin Parent) fades into the background of an airport terminal as a slow-motion parade of Down syndrome patients marches into the foreground. It’ll save you from having to endure the cloying special-needs love story, the meta-spiritual “twist” that intertwines the concurrent narratives, and more than three minutes of director Jean-Marc Vallée’s hyper-pretentious editing, which garbles his cosmic statement about love, music and happiness into vomitous arthouse slush. The only message that emerges from the muck is that Evelyne Brochu looks good naked. She is naked a lot, so that’s a plus.
