Editorial Reviews

When Michel, a failed inventor from Belgium, discovers he was adopted, he sets off to find his birth parents in Canada. There he encounters Louis, a kindred spirit who has much in common with Michel. Is this a coincidence, or not?
Canadian director Philippe Falardeau toys with coincidence, contrivance, and near-mystical encounters, in this comic drama with as many twists of fate as there are twists of plot. But, clever viewers will spot the visual clues to make this an enjoyable interactive movie experience. In addition, CONGORAMA boasts stellar performances from an international cast, including wonderful bits by veterans Jean-Pierre Cassel (Murder on the Orient Express) and Gabriel Arcand (The Decline of the American Empire).

Format: DVD
This trans-Atlantic comedy is an oddly unpredictable mix of story elements and characters that takes us from Belgium to Quebec and back again. The Congo and two World's Fairs figure into the plot, as do missing plans for an electric car, an emu, a solar-powered lawnmower, two restaurant owners (one of them a schoolbus driver with an arm in a cast), lousy French fries and bad coffee, a diamond chip lodged behind someone's left eye, a stroke-immobilized novelist, a village where everyone is named Legros, a birthmark in the shape of Africa, a man in a coma, and so on. The story starts "two years ago," and not only once but twice.

The thread of a narrative that holds it all together is the effort of a not-too-successful Belgian inventor to find his Canadian birth parents after discovering in middle age that he's adopted. What he finds along the way is far more than he bargained for. Off-the-wall and enjoyable.

I buy movies for the local Alliance Francaise, and this is one. It's Belgian/Quebec about a Belgian inventor who uses a sales trip to Quebec to search for his roots after he learns he was adopted from a young Quebec woman after he was born. While there, he discovers an invention that had never been developed, and he developes it in Belgium. Although he never discovers his family, we do.
