Leolo (Because I Dream)*

  • 1993 ----- color ----- 106 min ----- vhs///
  • (Directed by Jean-Claude Lauzon; with Ginelle Reno, Pierre Bourgault, Maxime Collin, Giudilla del Vecchio, Julien Guiomar) Leolo is a comic and fearless account of the terrors and joys of adolescence in an uncertain world. It is the audacious study of a 12-year-old dreamer who is convinced he is the offspring of a sperm-laden Sicilian tomato. Features a rich and varied soundtrack that ranges from sacred music to Tom Waits and The Rolling Stones.
