Trivia

The song, "Baba O'Riley" (by The Who) was actually written as a tribute to Terry Riley, the legendary American minimalist composer who scored HOCHELAGA. Director Francois Girard was a long-time fan of Riley, but had never met him. Music Supervisor for the film, Robert Thompson, worked with Riley, and introduced the two of them at brunch in Brooklyn.

Bad telling, bad linking and weak emotions for lazy people.
26 June 2018 | by PatParnellSee all my reviews

This is just a miss as I'm concerned. The premise to begin the whole enterprise is just a joke. The main actor (Samian) is just boring and without any kind of deepness in his role (he's a singer, but he's clearly not an actor).

The movie is slow and full of dull poetic tries that go nowhere (they try to fill the emptiness of the script), links that have no value and the assemblage is just not working as a valid work. I've tried to like some historical or artistic points in that movie, but I can't. It felt amateur and childish. It's a movie in the "air du temps" which means it is told in a weird asynchronous way just because if not, it would be even worst (like 2/10), it's filled with empty emotions, boring images and both the historical and reflexive aspects are quite low. Those people tried to make a historical non-historical semi-fiction about indigenous culture linked with a part of his progression, but it's a fail, a total fail. If you want to lean something about indigenous culture (or Quebec Culture as a whole), take a book on the subject or watch another movie. This one, even for entertainment, will make you lose your time.
