Trivia

The short was made in a hurry, with no money and in a single day. The idea was to bring Martin Villeneuve's grandmother back to life for one last day, the day before her house was sold. The character was shot in her true environment, among her furniture and objects, and the actor-director even got to wear her real dresses. See more »

Can't wait for feature-length!

While there are many subtle Quebecois notes that may not quite translate for Americans, this is a rich film for anyone who's ever loved a grandmother to enjoy.

Villeneuve did an exceptional job at capturing the charms, eccentricities and complexities of family, religion and history in Quebec. It brought me back to my season of living in Montreal as an American, slowly becoming more and more aware of the presence of history in the culture, language and city. Endlessly layered and illuminating.

Thoughtful words, luminous sets, authentic character.

Can't wait for a feature-length.
