The 80s were all about Rubik’s cubes, Michael Jackson, cassette Walkmans, calculator watches and seven-cent popsicles. But for 11-year-old Ricardo Trogi, starting afresh in a new school in Quebec City, it is a time to make new friends and fall in love – the only problem is the friends don’t like him and the girl doesn’t know he exists.
Ricardo Trogi (born March 25, 1970 in Quebec City, Quebec) is a French Canadian filmmaker, director and actor. Trogi’s first two films, Québec-Montréal, about seven twenty-something travellers driving between the two cities, and Horloge Biologique, a look at three men and their decisions about having children, were both critical and commercial hits, with Quebec-Montréal receiving four Jutra Awards. His third feature titled Mille neuf cent quatre-vingt-un (1981), a semi-autobiographical film about a boy’s coming of age, was released in September 2009. In addition to film work, Trogi also directed the 2004-2005 television series Smash. —Wikipedia
