QUéBEC, Canada | 92 minutes | 1977
Through a gallery of colourful characters, mordant humour and jittery camerawork, Forcier draws a tender portrait of a group of friends from a working-class background. The Quebec director captures something genuine as, in this seemingly idyllic community, his characters are busy dredging up their deepest secrets and delivering bald truths about one another. Birthday boy Polo, an unscrupulous loan shark who takes advantage of his friends, clashes with the tenants desperate to find some happiness in their day-to-day. The result is a modern fable: world-weary, yet lively and poetic.PREMIERE - restored version by Éléphant: mémoire du cinéma québécoisAndré Forcier will be in attendancePresented by Éléphant: mémoire du cinéma québécois
