  1. Benjamin Reid's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

    Mostly a solid piece of Christmas melancholy that feels like a Canadian version of a James Joyce short story. Still, it feels extremely slight. Perhaps the characters need more depth. It is certainly gorgeous in terms of visuals and its portrayal of rural Quebec, but Canada's greatest film? Perhaps a hot take, but it's disheartening that so much of this is rural townies getting drunk and sexually harassing each other

  2. Bilouaustria's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

    It is not a perfect film alright but on some shots you have this awesome feeling that truth is caught on camera. Some are barely acting and altogether the characters are really well written, with all the secondary plots. Jutra started as a documentary filmmaker and you can obviously feel this in this work. "Mon once Antoine" was made in the spirit of Pialat and it compares well thanks to its fantastic cast.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

    Une oeuvre composite où la simplicité côtoie l'émotion, la tendresse convole avec le pittoresque, par un cinéaste surtout connu pour ses documentaires... www.cinefiches.com

  4. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

    We Quebecers are such bad catholics, myths and traditions lie deconstructed and defaced, all have their own little vices, and our children dies in their parents' arms. How white was my valley...

  6. James Mackin's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

    Not horrible, a bit overrated.

  7. DVC's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

    Shocking and beautiful

  8. Laura Suffield's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

    Very worthwhile. A deceptively simple film and one in some ways little different to many other coming of age narratives, but with the fascinating element of a particular culture and place that gives rise to unexpected situations.

  9. Beatrice's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

    Rather difficult to sit through. I suppose a lot of it just passes you by if you are not Québécois.

  10. Alberto Redighieri's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

    Almost 60% of dialogues are not subtitled properly for non french speakers.

  11. Klaas De Roo's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

    niemand doet graag zijn werk

  12. Cid Medeiros's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

    A marvelous reconstruction of everyday life in Quebec some time ago in the twentieth century. Through mundane activities, french-speaking culture, Canadian harsh weather and structural economic elements, Jutra attempts to frame the "Québécoise" mindset at the time. The result comes with a beautiful cinematography and a good level of sympathy towards the people responsible to create a nation within another country.

  13. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

    While it does seem like an interesting film, it's frustrating that you don't translate at least 25 percent of the dialogue. Not sure I would want this to stand for Canad's greatest film. It's a bit corny.

  18. sordid's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

    quiet, but always present - leaves a bitter aftertaste that can't be called unpleasant

  19. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

    Little House on the Prairie gone Awry. Almost a day after and still thinking of it, it is actually pretty good!!

  20. SueRay's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

  21. EdieEmm's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

    Class, community, power, politics in a still-then-fermenting Quebec; the exhilaration/demoralization/triumphs/horrors of the day-to-day business of growing up… shown as much through a perfect convergence of non-narrative elements as through any standard storytelling. Definite testament to the power of cinema that a film so understated can convey SO much. Really great.

  23. Cinerio's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

  24. msmichel's rating of the film Mon oncle Antoine

    A Quebecois classic and truly quintessential Canadian cinema. Jutra's feel for 1940's rural Quebec and for a Canadian/Quebecois identity rings genuine. Nostalgic certainly but also rang true with audiences on release in '71 and since. Performances are strong all around with naturalistic cinematography by the late Michel Brault. Those looking for a linear story and convenient wrap-ups should look elsewhere.
