  3. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Wrestling

    While cinéma-direct documentaries helped shape Quebec's national identity in the midst of the Quiet Revolution, its creators were already conscious of the dangers of mythology. In the such grotesque spectacle, the passions are not exorcised but reinforced in ugly stereotypes: the tenacious French-Canadian, the weak Italian, and their opponents, Russian communists and English invaders. Not much has changed since...

  9. msmichel's rating of the film Wrestling

    Classic NFB documentary short from a group of directors who would all go on to define Quebecois cinema in the sixties and seventies. A glimpse of the old Montreal Forum on a night in 1961 as a small but enthusiastic group of fans attend a wresting match. The English narration is a bit of a miss but the crisp black and white imagery speaks volumes on its own. Even a few of the techs here went on to directorial work.

My cinema teacher arrived at class and told us that we were goint to watch 2 short films from one of the greatest documentarist and filmmaker of history. I got confused for a while, as i've said before, he was a total stranger for me. He projected us 'La Lutte' and ' Genevieve'. God damn, this film opens with one of the most marvelous scenes ever, insane body
