A mesmerizing dramatization of the 1989 massacre by Montreal engineering student Marc Lepine of 14 female students, fuelled by rage at feminist "viragos." The film faithfully recreates the violence in gleaming black and white, but refuses to wallow in it, abstracting an impression of profound beauty from the atrocity.
