Ce premier opus, 'Elvis Gratton, le film' (aussi connu sous le titre 'Elvis Gratton: Le king des kings') est un montage des trois courts-métrages,'Elvis Gratton' (1981), 'Les vacances d'Elvis Gratton' (1983) et 'Pas encore Elvis Gratton' (1985). See more »
First, Elvis Gratton is a comedy, which means you should not to take it seriously. This is the story of a man who's idol is Elvis (baby!) and who enters a contest of Elvis imitations. He wins and the price is a trip to Santa-Banana, a tropical island. The fun thing about this film is that, through funny jokes, we follow the life of a stupid, racist and sexist individual who is happy that Quebec didn't separate from Canada in 1980. This has became a cult movie exactly because Quebec didn't separate. I guess you've got to have some French Canadian roots to understand this movie.
But for these French Canadians who are offended by this movie, who say strangers will think that we are all like that, let me tell you something. It's just like thinking that all Americans are like Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber.
