Weak Story, but interesting undercurrents....
29 April 2001 | by (Montreal, Quebec) – See all my reviews

Granted, the basic story line of this movie is not much more than ordinary. However, this movie becomes interesting when one listens to the ideas and the dialogues the characters dish out trhoughout the film. Basicaly, you've got all the basic guidelines of Quebec's "Révolution Tranquille" movement, stated with little bias. This is a good movie for somebody who would like to understand where the present Francophone culture, in Quebec, came from. That movie was made at the height of the movement, and are expressed with almost no alteration to their original form. Being a francophone myself, I still have trouble with the fact that they try to have a French-from-France accent trhoughout the movie, as if it validated and gave a sense of intellectuality to what they were saying.

Anyways, good movie, Every Quebec Resident should watch this movie, for fun or a better understanding of the people we live with.
