Documentary, poetry and essay rolled into one, The Memories of
Angels is a singular lesson in Montreal history with its famous
figures, symbolic places and ordinary citizens. Without a commentary, the film
moves from the red light district to Jean Drapeau, the Jacques-Cartier market,
department stores downtown, textile factories and the construction of Place
Ville-Marie. We meet Geneviève Bujold, Oscar Peterson, Monique Mercure and
Igor Stravinsky. We hear Raymond Lévesque, Jean Drapeau and René Lecavalier.
A loving tribute to the vitality of Montreal and a joyous experience for all generations.
