Not In The English Language #2 – Mon Oncle Antoine

22 December 2010 6:00 AM, PST | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Welcome to “Not In The English Language”, a new weekly column from HeyUGuys. Each week a different film not in the English language will come under scrutiny.

This week, with festivities in the air, Adam Batty takes a look at Claude Jutra’s 1971 French Canadian classic, Mon Oncle Antoine.

Jutra’s Christmas-set tale of life in rural Quebec provides a wonderful and unique spin on the festive movie. The story of Benoit, a 15-year old boy who works in his uncle’s general store, Mon Oncle Antoine follows him one Christmas Eve, in which Benoit accompanies the titular character to pick up the dead body of a local teenage boy. Somehow, in spite of this rather gloomy sounding set of events, Mon Oncle Antoine manages to capture the heart and soul of the festive period in a timeless and wholly convincing manner.

Granted, Jutra’s film is a tad macabre »

Winners at the 30th Genie Awards

13 April 2010 5:00 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

Yesterday, the Genie Awards, Canada's equivalent of the Oscars for those who don't know, were handed out. This year, Polytechnique dominated the Genie Awards and even took the award for Best Motion Picture. However, the presentation of the award on TV and on webcast was too short. Besides, it wasn't a live presentation and not all the awards were shows on TV/webcast. Second Besides: When will a TV network (and not some cable network that few Canadians have) broadcast the Genie Awards? Anyway, without further ado, here's the presentation of the winners.

Genie Awards 2010: I Killed My Mother’s Absence “An Aberration”

13 April 2010 1:42 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

I Killed My Mother Xavier Dolan, Anne Dorval Polytechnique: Genie Awards 2010 At the other extreme, Xavier Dolan probably can’t believe he won nothing. Or almost. As previously reported, Dolan’s acclaimed J’ai tué ma mère / I Killed My Mother – winner of three of Quebec’s Jutra Awards two weeks ago, including Best Picture (Polytechnique had also been in the running) – was totally shut out of the Genies’ competitive categories. At the Genies, writer-director-actor Dolan had to content himself with a special Claude Jutra Award for best first feature. Dolan was not present at the ceremony. Kevin Tierney, vice-chairman of cinema for the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television, accepted the award on Dolan’s behalf. Backstage, Tierney told journalists (as quoted by [...] »

Canada's Genies Toast "Polytechnique," Snub "Mother"

1 March 2010 7:11 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Perhaps the most discussed Canadian film on the festival circuit last year - and its submission to the Academy Awards, Xavier Dolan's "I Killed My Mother," was almost entirely snubbed at this morning's announcement of the 30th Annual Genie Awards, Canada's version of the Oscars. "Mother"'s sole recognition came as being the winner of the annual Claude Jutra Award, which recognizes the outstanding achievement of a first-time filmmaker. Instead, Dolan's fellow »
