Whats a good Quebec movie to watch?

 

I have seen...

My Daughter, My Angel

Bon Cop, Bad Cop

The Barbarian Invasion

Eternal

 

What do people think of? "J'ai tué ma mère" by Xavier Dolan.

 

I tried watching... "Mr. Nobody" but it was to much like "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button". True, "Mr. Nobody" not really a Quebec movie, but most of it was filmed here or I should say on a set.

I saw "Quebec-Montreal" on TV a long time ago and I forgot what happens in it except one guy gets mad at his girlfriend and one of those "moose crossing" road signs starts talking to a guy on a bicycle???

 

I saw CRAZY but the only decent parts of it was the dad's old Chryslers and the Saab convertible the main character drives at the end, plus the "vintage" scenes of Montreal, the main character is just too prissy :)

 

I remember a good one about some gangsters that was from the 1980's but forgot the title...

 

Maybe watch Les Bougon on DVD instead, that show was hilarious :D

C.R.A.Z.Y. est un excellent film. 1981 de Ricardo Trogi est bien divertissant. Tout le cinéma de Robert Morin vaut la peine d'être vu si on a pas peur de voir quelque chose de différent. Gilles Carle, les gars de l'ONF et du cinéma direct (Michel Brault, Gilles Groulx, Pierre Perrault, Claude Jutra, etc.), Denys Arcand (Le déclin de l'empire américain).

 

Ça te plaîra probablement pas tout, mais c'est difficile de pas conseiller des classiques du genre quand t'étudies en cinéma. Toujours s'informer sur le contexte de production d'un film et de son époque aide à mieux apprécier un film à sa juste valeur. ;)

I always liked the movie "La Grande Séduction". The first time I watched it, I was shocked that they were calling welfare cheques "des chèques de BS". BS in English means Bull Shit, but I only found out later that it meant Bien-être Sociale.

 

I've noticed that Quebec movies have a fairly unique style of humour.

Oh yeah la Grande Seduction was hilarious too...

The strangest "Québec" movie I ever saw was "The Jackal" starring Sidney Poitier and Bruce Willis. The first third of the movie is set in and filmed in Montréal. Then the action shifts to Chicago. The last third of the movie is set in Washington DC but was filmed in Montréal. The Montréal métro doubles as the Washington DC metro! The final scene is supposedly set in Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia but you can see the Place Vill Marie tower in the distance.

Dans le cinéma québécois, j'aime bien le réalisme avec une certaine dureté, comme Les bons débarras, Un zoo la nuit ou Tout est parfait et Polytechnique, il n'y a pas si longtemps. Mais j'avoue qu'on peut aussi trouver ça un peu déprimant.

 

Cela fait des années que j'essaie de mettre la main sur "un zoo la nuit" car Léolo reste selon moi le meilleur film québecois et un des meilleurs films que j'ai vu tout court. Je recommande également "ce qu'il faut pour vivre" et "maelstrom". Dans le genre "trash", Borderline était très bon. Quant à Polytechnique, c'est un film bouleversant.
