How to learn about politics in Quebec: charisma and humanity of René Levesque
Really well done documentary about the Quebec politic in the '70s, and the failure of the referendum when they tried to be independent. In this movie, you realize how it was back then, and the utopia spirit they lived. The portrait of the great René Levesque, at the head of the Parti Québecois, is moving, and his speeches sound just right. He is those kind of rare politics who we can trust, because he is loyal, sincere, honest. It's nevertheless how the movie depicted him, and I really believe he was like that though I don't know much about Quebec politic past. I had a really nice overview of this important period for the Province with this excellent documentary.
