I remember all too well the tragedy in Canada; l was horrified that a fellow classmate would want to kill others in a hard science environment simply based on being female.

The movie captured the setup well by using flashbacks; the scenes with the killer were as creepy and believable as a standard "major motion picture" villain, which made the banality of evil in this mass murder even more terrifying. The small scene where one of the female characters is hit with an inappropriate (and actionable) gender-biased question on an interview for an internship, showing that sexism was still openly pervasive in the workplace in the 1980's - back-to-back with a scene where the killer describes all of the "advantages" women have over men - was especially ironic and disturbing.

Writing, acting, directing...all were fantastic, for a film covering such a difficult subject. One of the best films I've ever seen in this genre. Watch it - it is well worth the time, given how many school shootings now occur.

Evelyne Brochu - While her role is subtle, and words few, it is her ability to use her eyes and expressions to convey the characters feelings. She is such a pro at this! This shooting was in 1989 before it seem to become a weekly occurrence all over this planet. So sad.

Viewers know this is based on a true story about a shooter in a college. We've all read about these terrible events, but as the film begins we know we're going to be a spectator to it happening.

Perhaps we want to see, because we could very well be confronted with this terror in a shopping mall, restaurant or any public place and we want to imagine that we might survive, as some did in this movie, by doing the smallest of things that mean the difference between life and death.

Excellent cinematography, acting and directing. Truly a "must see".
