Recommended Posts

Une série financée par Rogers Media sur le crime organisé à Montréal. Bad Blood raconte la montée et la chute de Vito Rizzuto comme chef de la mafia sicilienne à Montréal. Alain Desrochers produit la série mais il s'agit essentiellement d'une production Torontoise, filmée à Montréal et Sudbury exclusivement en anglais et dont la promotion se fait principalement dans le Canada anglais. La série de six épisodes débute sur CityTV le 21 septembre à 20hrs.

 

"Bad Blood is a story of family, loyalty, deceit, power, greed and ultimately revenge. Montreal Mafia boss Vito Rizzuto is a criminal anomaly – the only man to bring peace among the disparate wings of the Montreal crime world who would serve as a de facto CEO while ensuring a lucrative payday for all. When Rizzuto is suddenly arrested and extradited to Colorado’s Supermax Prison for the 1981 murders of three Bonanno crime family members, the powerful empire he built begins to crumble. Rizzuto watches helplessly as his family and friends are killed one by one. Upon his release from prison in October 2012, a Shakespearean-level revenge tale unfolds, leading to the brutal murders of his closest companions, and ultimately, to the death of Rizzuto himself."

Someone should raise $30-40 million (small by Hollywood standards) and have Denis Villeneuve make a movie about the Rizzuto family, this series is pure fiction and pure garbage

I know. It's like an Ontarian's fantasy of what Montreal is. I cringed a lot watching it. The accents are wrong, the dialogues are bad, the story is watered down.... Problem here is that it's Rogers in Toronto who was willing to put the money for this. Here in Quebec, French media would NEVER pay for a series that actually happens bilingually and that would fail to employ the usual clique of Quebecois actors. It's honestly a shame that people from outside Montreal are the ones taking interest in this city's history and are the ones making whatever they want about it. The series got all the advertisement in Toronto where it was being sold as the story of a "Canadian mobster" and actors were going on promotional events saying "it's a 100% Canadian story" yet never set foot in Montreal (funny how when commission charbonneau was happening it was a "Quebec" thing to the rest of Canada but now that it's a TV series, it's "Canadian").

I reeeeeaaaaally dig the idea of having Villeneuve re-do this series proper..... For Netflix. Now that would be awesome.

Euh... la série Omerta, qui a eu un grand succès, c'était pas mal ça.  C'était une fiction, fortement inspirée par la vraie mafia montréalaise.  Et ça parlait français et anglais, selon le personnage.  Excellente série, d'ailleurs.

Les télédiffuseurs francophones étaient en avance sur leur temps, faut croire...

Fair enough. Mais là ça fait 20 ans depuis Omerta. On serait mûre pour un update. Le folklore Montréalais s'est grandement enrichi depuis ces années.... Le grand-père Rizzuto qui met des liasses de billets dans ses bas, M. Trottoire qui demande à la commissaire, le plus sérieusement du monde "La mafia? c'est quoi la mafia?", le maire Applebaum qui se faisait payer avec des liasses bourrées dans des coffrets DVD de la série 24h et j'en passe.
