Storyline

Claude is a middle-class French-Canadian filmmaker in his thirties from a good family and with a number of accomplishments. Uncertain about his life and the choices he has made, his family, his career, and his relationships are always under scrutiny by the the group of narcissistic intellectual friends and acquaintances he mingles with.

sixties film from montreal, canada
28 July 2019 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

A smidge annoying... clearly the sound track was added later, and the translation track is just a bit too peppy and energetic. a bit pompous and cavalier... too grandiose to be natural conversation. Apparently a true life story... so many issues discussed. sleeping with others, inter-racial relationships, which were still a big deal then, and of course, homosexuality. It's black and white, in every sense of the word! and french canadian. Written, directed, AND starring Claude Jutra. Claude plays claude. Johanne plays Joanne. Victor plays Victor... so much laughing, but we're not sure what everyone is laughing about. the story is kind of random and artsy, but it was the 1960s, and foreign, so a certain amount can be forgiven. and extra credit for dealing with some of these forbidden issues of the time. it's okay. part of the time, we're not sure what's really going on.. gets very dark. some things are lost in translation. only 200 votes on imdb, and including this one, now two reviews.
