A masterpiece
17 April 2000 | by (Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is no ordinary documentary. It's history and ethnology. Brault & Perrault shot that at a moment when a traditional way of life was still part of the every day of the fishermen of a small island of the St-Laurent river, in Québec. The way the old people talk are very XIXe Century. Old people takes their traditions to the youngs. Little children watch and learn, like in a society where oral transmission was the only way to learn. It's also made when National Film Board of Canada (ONF) was very very creative, espacially the French Canadians who were working there. This is a very unique piece of work.
