Canadian Film Celebrating Homosexuality Sweeps Film Awards

TORONTO, Ontario, March 15, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Quebec film celebrating homosexuality swept the Canadian Genie awards on Monday night.

C.R.A.Z.Y. is a film about a young gay man growing up with four brothers in a large Catholic family. The story is set in suburban Quebec during the 60’s.

Following the trend set by the gay cowboy movie Brokeback Mountain, C.R.A.Z.Y. was nominated for 12 awards and won ten of them. The film won for best picture, best director and leading actor.

The film’s director, Jean-Marc Vallee, describes the story as “a mystical fable about a modern-day Christ-like figure.”

Presumably, he attributes Christ-like-ness to the gay central character for his willingness to hide his gayness from his father out of love for him.

C.R.A.Z.Y. was also Canada’s largest grossing movie, earning more than $6.2 million and the Golden Reel Award. The bulk of the film’s earnings came from Quebec. The French-language movie was barely noticed by the rest of Canada, only bringing in some $500,000 outside of Quebec.

The Canadian film surpassed Brokeback Mountain, which was nominated for eight awards at the Oscars, failed to get best picture and won three awards for original score, adapted screenplay and direction.

No film awards will have any creditability in the near future.

Why does Canada always seem to take every leftist lunacy in the United States and ratchet things up a notch?

in an effort to garner a larger viewer ship, "Brokeback Mountain" will be renamed "Shootout at the KY Corral", to try to market its western theme.

Films celebrating homosexuality are nothing new. There have been tons of them for years. It's just that they all had their own special corner waaay in the back of the video store. And my guess is that they tended not to have "Christ-like figures" in them. Maybe that's what is new.

Gays are prominent in the film industry and have a COMPULSION to get out their agenda. It's time for conservative millionares to form a film studio and get out their agenda.

Why is it that all the perverts, who spend their lives running from the Word of God, always try to liken their obcenities to Christ? They just keep piling abomination upon abomination.

C.R.A.Z.Y. was also Canada’s largest grossing movie,

Largest grossing or just grossest?

The largest grossing film in Canada made only $6.2 million?

I guess Canadians got sick and tired of this crapola years ago!

There's a good reason it raised very little in the way of money or attention. That is like a US film grossing $4-5 million.

Quebec has always been very supportive of homegrown films, and I am sure many saw it out of curiousity. Not to mention the extreme pro-gay atmosphere that exists in Montreal...

That $6.2 million is mostly in Quebec. Also that is the largest grossing Canadian-made film; US blockbuster films routinely make $20 million or more in Canada.

A step in the right direction.

John Paul the great College in San Diego!!!! Nice.

The culture of death cannot win. This has just been a bunch of misled baby-boomers with nothing better to do than "push the envelope." It is Beatlemania gone awry! (Homosexualmania) The good baby-boomers have just been too busy living right as adults to be able to counter this garbage.

All I can say is O Canada! May prayers bring you to a deep sense of goodness and truth.
