Storyline

Even in rural Quebec in 1969 things were changing. A twelve year old boy, in love with his attractive teacher decides to fulfill his dream of seeing Jimi Hendrix in Woodstock with his father. But life decides otherwise. His father dies, causing his mother to lose grip with reality. His sister reciprocally falls in love with the village's priest, his best friend is repeatedly beaten by his father and the new teacher appeals more to his tastes than a young girl about his age. Will he succeed? Written by Anonymous

Funny, warm and touching.
17 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is another coming-of-age comedy with elements of drama from Quebec. The movie takes place in 1969, in a small town, where a 12 year old boy dreams of making it to the Woodstock Festival to see his hero, a guitar rock musician James Hendrix. There are a lot of funny scenes and touching episodes. A fair amount of drama and a bit of tragedy. Overall, it is a great movie, which keeps you feel good, long after you walk out of the theater. I think the movie will also appeal to those who want to see an interesting movie about the life in Quebec at that time. I liked the very nicely developed characters and the great actors' play as well.
