Mon oncle Antoine

Top of page

Ce film, dont l'action remonte aux environs de 1940, reconstitue l'atmosphère qui régnait dans une petite ville minière du Québec, la veille de Noël, seul jour de l'année où les usines fermaient leurs portes. Insouciante pour quelques heures, la population, rassemblée au magasin général, oublie sa pauvreté et se livre à la joie des Fêtes. Aux aguets, un garçon de quinze ans, attentif aux conversations et gestes de ses aînés, découvre à travers les êtres qui l'entourent l'univers des adultes, le monde des sensations et sa rudesse, celui de la souffrance et des petites folies auxquelles on se raccroche et qui prennent, pour un instant, l'air du bonheur.

1971, 110 min 20 s
