    Jean-Claude Lazon’s career was so remarkable. Just two features, and both are absolutely essential works of Quebecois cinema. We lost him far, far too soon

    Jean-Claude Lazon only made 2 remarkable films (NIGHT ZOO and LEOLO) when he died in a plane crash. great loss to cinema. Both films should be seen by all. Thanks Jon for uploading Night Zoo
