In Frank Vitale's autobiographical study, he plays a photographer living among the assorted outcasts, junkies, and artists populating Montreal's Main. Quieter and more introspective than most of his friends, Frank becomes smitten by Johnny, a fourteen-year-old from the suburbs. But the relationship is doomed by the startling degree of hypocrisy and possessiveness that boils over among the group when they discover the intensity of Frank's feelings about the boy.Written by

The film was aired on WNET Ch.13 NYC in the 70's a few times. I saw the film repeatedly and was amazed by the creativity regarding the subject of intergenerational relationships. Way ahead of its time. It brought back memories of my years in Montreal, esp. 1969. The film captures the multicultural diversity of Canada's, Quebec's premier city. The creator has enjoyed a remarkable career with many other talented productions. Has anyone ever made a sequel to Montreal Main ???What are the principals doing today ??? Many other interesting films were shot on location in Montreal. Is there a filmography for Montreal?? It is now Christmas time 2006 as I write. I was hoping that PBS would program for airing the Claude Jutra classic "Mon Oncle Antoine". I remember the line from Claude Jutra's "Kamouraska" spoken by actor Phillipe Leotard "Je Sui Le seigneur DE Kamouraska!".
