A family's distressful life
9 January 2005 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

The story is set as the war starts to rage in Europe. It follows years of depression in Montreal. Life is miserable in working class neighborhood like Saint-Henri. Some aspire to something better, maybe even a life at the other end of the city, Westmount, where rich people live. It's a great story by Gabrielle Roy, but not a great film by Claude Fournier. The movie wants to be a tear-jerker, but except with a few scenes, fails to be. The acting is mediocre. Some lines seem to be delivered by high-school drama students. All the actors in this movie have had better performances. And the director seems to pay little attention to details: it's always the same streetcar (#200) and it's always going by right when you need it. For all those reasons, "Bonheur d'occasion" is not a memorable film, even if it had the potential to be.

Seen at home, in Toronto, on January 9th, 2005. I first saw it in a French class while in high school, in Hearst (Ontario), about 15 years ago.

69/100 (**)
