Storyline

Set in Montreal during the disco phenomenon some 35 years ago, Funkytown follows the life of a group of colorful characters. We follow their lives and tribulations as everyone converges on a regular basis at Montreal's hot disco spot: Starlight. Along the way, several events take place that change these characters' lives. As these characters' lives unfold, the Parti Québécois takes power changing the cultural landscape in Quebec while the disco craze slowly fades. While we keep up with these various characters - it is Bastien who is a central part of this story. His drug addiction, dreams to become an actor and womanizing - make him the "bigger than life" typical 70s character around which the whole story revolves. Written by S G.

This is a good movie to check out I think the story has some pretty obvious low points and holes but over all the production value is super high. They have a couple recognized big name actors in it but the entire cast is decent enough to watch usually a low budget Canadian type movie like this has some real bad acting actors in it but that is not a problem here. The movie I wish could have been more funny in spots but it is more about the situations and some drama being built around all that. I am a fan of the star and he does a lot of movies lately so hopefully there will be more, I think this movie deserves to be seen so check it out sometime! Support Canada cinema!
