Mon oncle Antoine
(1971)

Country: Canada

Genre: Drama

IMDb

Synopsis

Claude Jutra's evocative portrait of a boy's coming of age in wintry 1940s rural Quebec has been consistently cited by critics and scholars as the greatest Canadian film of all time. Delicate, naturalistic, and tinged with a striking mix of nostalgia and menace, Mon oncle Antoine follows Benoit, as he first encounters the twin terrors of sex and death, and his fellow villagers, who are living under the thumb of the local asbestos mine owner. Set during one ominous Christmas, Mon oncle Antoine is a holiday film unlike any other, and an authentically detailed illustration of childhood’s twilight.

Has been described as the greatest Canadian film ever made, and may well be. Certainly is among the very best, along with Les démons, Les bons débarras and the Inuit trilogy Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner, The Journals of Knud Rasmussen and Before Tomorrow.

A drama with many comic accents. Great play all around. Near the end my expectations were not fully satisfied, but they weren't supposed to be.
