This feature documentary by Jacques Godbout retraces the life of Hubert Aquin, one of Quebec's most brilliant writers. The film revolves around 2 episodes in Aquin's life: the dramatic events leading up to the publication of his first novel, and the anguish of the months preceding his suicide. (Aquin ended his life in 1977.) An unusual montage technique intercuts excerpts from a feature film in which he was the lead actor with the recollections of people who knew him well.

    The ending is chilling. The wife is metaphorically yelling jump! Jump! I couldn’t be that detached even if it was a stranger. To encourage and plan someone’s death might have been a crime in the US. Obviously, more planning that someone has put into a suicide, the greater the risk.
