Gerry is a biographical film about the late Canadian rock singer Gerry Boulet (1946-1990) and his band Offenbach. Maurie Alioff writes, in part, in his July 2011 column Inside Québec: “For Quebeckers, especially Baby Boomers, the late Gerry Boulet (1946-1990) is a music legend. Those who still hanker for Quebec’s sovereignty embrace him as a symbol of nationalist passion that burns far less brightly than it did during the heyday of Boulet’s band, Offenbach. Like many pictures about music icons, Alain DesRocher’s Gerry opens at a turning point moment in Boulet’s life, flashes back, in this case to childhood, and then propels forward, hitting all the obligatory scenes one would expect from the ode to rock star genre.”

Gerry premiered in Boulet`s home town of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu on May 30, 2011.
