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.
