C.R.A.Z.Y. is an award-winning and popular 2005 French language Canadian film from Quebec. It tells the story of Zac, a young bisexual man growing up with four brothers and a homophobic father in 1960s and 1970s Quebec. The film was directed and co-written (with François Boulay) by Jean-Marc Vallée. The title derives from the first letter in the names of the five brothers: Christian, Raymond, Antoine, Zachary and Yvan, and also refers to their father's abiding love of Patsy Cline's classic song "Crazy".Zac struggles to define his own identity, and deal with the conflict between his emerging sexuality and his intense desire to please his strict, temperamental and homophobic father. One of the film's themes is the waning influence of the Catholic Church in Québec society during the Quiet Revolution.
Period music is an important element of the movie, and a considerable portion of the film's budget was spent acquiring rights for songs by Patsy Cline, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones as well as David Bowie's "Space Oddity" and many others
