"Mon Oncle Antoine"
Directed by Claude Jutra
Jutra's acclaimed, sensitive, breakthrough film of a young boy coming of age in the
Canadian backwoods swept the Canadian Academy Awards. Young Benoit slowly becomes aware of
the affinities between love, life and death as he works as a stock boy in his uncle
Antoine's general store. Since Antoine serves as everything from notary to shopkeeper to
undertaker, it is no wonder that Benoit learns about life quickly. French with English
