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.
