Léolo

Léolo is a 1992 film by Quebec director Jean-Claude Lauzon.

The film tells the story of Léo Lauzon (Maxime Collin), a young boy living in a Montreal tenement with his dysfunctional family. He uses his active fantasy life and the book L'avalée des avalés by Canadian novelist Réjean Ducharme to escape the reality of his life. After deciding that his mother (Ginette Reno) was impregnated not by his father, but by an Italian tomato, he rechristens himself Léolo, and begins to have sexual fantasies about his neighbour Bianca (Giuditta del Vecchio).

Gilbert Sicotte, as the adult Léolo, narrates the film. The cast also includes Pierre Bourgault, Andrée Lachapelle, Denys Arcand, Julien Guiomar and Germain Houde.

It was Lauzon's final film; he died in a plane crash in 1997 while working on his next project.

In 2005, TIME named Léolo one of the 100 best films of all time.
