Jesus de Montreal*

  • 1989 ----- color ----- 120 min ----- vhs
  • (Directed by Denys Arcand; with Lothaire Bluteau, Catherine Wilkening, Johanne Marie Tremblay, Robert Lepage, Gilles Pelletier, Remy Girard) A troupe of underemployed actors joins a charismatic young man to help a church update its annual Passion Play. Their rag-tag production becomes a lightening rod, attracting a city-full of hope, praise, temptation and condemnation. It's a story of faith that balances the most profound questions of existence with witty, pungent observations on contemporary culture. [R-rated] (Donated by the Department of Canadian Studies) (In French with English subtitles) (Restricted to use by institutions of learning within the State of Washington only)
