Atmospheric evocation of the province of Ontario
11 August 1998 | by (Arlington, VA) – See all my reviews

This film was produced for the Ontario pavilion at Expo67, the Montreal World's Fair. It has no story line, and the only words used are the lyrics to the title song, which are sung in both English and French. The film uses a large, wide-screen format but makes frequent use of multi-screen images of various sizes and formats projected onto the single large screen (my favorite being a small screen which followed a character walking across the larger screen). The film evokes the various regions of the province throughout the year, and presents a winning image of Ontario to the world. Magnificent photography coupled with a catchy title song.
