Frequently voted as the greatest Canadian film of all time, MY UNCLE ANTOINE is a deeply cinematic record of ordinary life in a small Canadian mining town. The action occurs during one Christmas Eve, in 1940, developing into a rites-of-passage essay, both tender and funny, replete with a unique mood, and full of contrast between intimate interiors and open winter landscape in Quebec. The characters of a fourteen year old orphan and his Uncle Antoine are as natural as if taken directly from "life as it is."
