Mon Oncle Antoine*

  • (Directed by Claude Jutra; with Jacques Gagnon, Jean Duceppe, Olivette Thibault, Lyne Champagne, Claude Jutra) Claude Jutra's lyrical masterpiece about the coming-of-age of a 15-year-old boy in a small, economically depressed mining town is the most honored Canadian film ever made. Jutra filmed the work on location in the backwoods of Quebec, using many of the local inhabitants. The result is a gentle, nostalgic, and deeply moving evocation of the universal truths about life, death, fear, love and desire.
