「那些搞革命半途而廢的人恰恰在自掘墳墓」,這句話出自法國大革命奪權後推行恐怖管制的聖茹斯特,用來做片名,是弔詭地去看這四個前衛、富藝術氣質的年輕人修成正果嗎?不甘學生運動「楓葉之春」滿足於保持原狀,四人幫自訂抗爭規則,四處破壞起義,住在一起厲行紀律分明的公社生活,壓抑彼此同性愛之情感,不惜以流血與中產階級家人劃清界線,並出賣雌雄同體的身軀去維持革命生計。從行動分子變成恐怖分子,從反制度英雄變成縱火狗熊,丹尼斯與拉華抵觸布萊希特及尚盧高達精神,赤裸陳述革命必要承受的身心污染;「恐怖天使」的繼承者就這樣煉成?倒不如說他們是看到醜陋的半途而廢者吧。或許兩個導演真正的弔詭是:那些全程跟隨聖茹斯特之輩在「搞革命」的助紂為虐者恰恰在自掘墳墓。

With a quote from Louis Antoine de Saint-Just, one of the most zealous advocates of the Reign of Terror during the French Revolution, as its title, the film takes a paradoxical look at how four radical, artistic young Quebecers turn out in the aftermath of the student demonstrations, also known as Maple Spring in 2012. Unwilling to let the flame die out, the quartet make up their own rules of vandalism as activism while maintaining an austere, collective lifestyle. Some deny each other homosexual pleasure and one cut ties violently with her sell-out parents. They live and struggle to operate off what one of them earns as a transgender prostitute. Defying the tradition of Brecht and Godard, directors Denis and Lavoie paint a stark portrait of the necessary corruption of the body and the mind any revolutionary must face; as the four of them who want to produce change go from activists to terrorists, from anti-establishment heroes to arson perpetrators, have they become the millennial ‘Angel of Death’? Or rather, are they just disillusioned by the hideous quitters who settle for the middle ground? The real paradox the directors aiming at may lie in the fact that those who enabled the revolutionary Terror all the way are precisely digging their own graves.
