À la mort de son père, il fait une impétration émouvante de «Sweet Georgia Brown» et juste avant sa mort, il ferme le couvercle du piano et il dit «Je suis fini.»
Gérald (Gerry) Boulet (1946-1990) was one of the founding members of the innovative Quebec rock group, Offenbach (1969-1985). On April 3rd 1980, Offenbach became the first Quebecois group to perform in the old Montreal Forum located on the corner of Atwater and St Catherine. The band performed their farewell show there in 1985 as well as at the Colisée de Québec.
This is an important document that will strike many emotional chords with those who grew up with Quebec rock of the 70s. For many Quebecois, Gerry Boulet’s voice and lyrics is an expression of a generation, in essence the heart and soul.
The film traces the life of Gerry Boulet from his youth when, with his brother Denis, he would sneak into the church to play the organ until his untimely death from colon cancer on July 18th 1990. Contains many memorable scenes and among the most touching being:
At the death of his father, he does a soulful rendition of “Sweet Georgia Brown” and just before his death; he closes the piano cover and says “I’m finished.”
