Full Blast

Full Blast is a 1999 film by Canadian director Rodrigue Jean, his first long feature. Filmed in Bathurst, New Brunswick, the film was written by Nathalie Loubeyre as an adaptation of Martin Pitre's novel L'Ennemi que je connais. It was the first French-language feature film funded by Film New Brunswick, the provincial film development agency.


A strike at a sawmill in a small fictional community in New Brunswick puts Steph (David La Haye) and Piston (Martin Desgagné) out of work. They want to resurrect their band Lost Tribe, but Marie-Lou (Marie-Jo Thério), Piston's ex-wife and the band's former lead singer, is not enthusiastic about the idea.
