Synopsis:
C.R.A.Z.Y. tells the story of the extraordinary lives of ordinary people in search of love and happiness. It is a family drama about a father's love for his five sons and one son's love for his father that is so strong that it compels him to live a lie. That son is Zac, born on the 25th of December 1960, who is different from all his brothers but desperate to fit in. As a child Zac enjoys idyllic journeys as his father's favourite but by the same time the film transitions to 1975, Zac is a teenager caught up in Bruce Lee movies, glam rock music and sexual experiences that change everything in his life. By the 1980s, Zac's journey of self-discovery brings about some surprising conclusions.
The film uses the music of the times - the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Pink Floyd - to explore a new generation, playing them in contrast to such family favourites as Patsy Cline and Charles Aznavour. C.R.A.Z.Y. is a wildly entertaining and magical cincmatic homage to the pop-culture saturated middle-class of the seventies.

Lengthy. Easy-going. - Crazy review by CH

Spoiler Alert
12/08/2019

This French language film is typically over-long. The characters are refreshingly 'normal' family members, the plot fairly predictable---as, indeed,  is most family life! Seeing this from a view-point of 2019 the 'coming out' of Zac can seem laboured. However, the acting is fairly convincing, and the basic solidarity of the members' love for one another shines through. Enjoyable music throughout, so not an evening wasted!
