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
