The Agony of Jimmy Quinlan

Top of page

Jimmy Quinlan is a derelict, one of some five thousand men and women who have abandoned their jobs and families to live in the streets and alleys in Montréal. This film, a powerful portrayal of life on skid row, tells of his "agonies"--his attempt to get off the bottle. It's something he's tried before, and will probably have to try again.
