If you came to Montréal… (10)

Yesterday, my parents came to town for a family day of fun! Summer, in Montréal can be a little tricky… We have bad car traffic to start with, but during the summer months, it gets worse for many reasons. The city takes advantage of the nice weather to make most of the construction work, blocking…… Continue reading If you came to Montréal… (10)

Cyranny’s International Lovelies’ Film Festival…

  I love cinema. Especially foreign cinema. (especially… yes, Danish cinema, how did you know??) Every year, I attend Montreal Film Festival. Two weeks of intense International Cinema immersion. I don’t have anything against American blockbusters, but I know that there are so many gems from all around the planet, that don’t make it to…… Continue reading Cyranny’s International Lovelies’ Film Festival…

Relax…

  Nikki, from Flying Through Water , is now holding a weekly one-word challenge. This week’s word is “Relax”… Being relaxed is something most people seek, it seems natural to try to avoid stress… What could I possibly write about it, that wouldn’t fall short of interest? And a few minutes ago, as I was going about…… Continue reading Relax…

Beautiful Memories…

In French, Se souvenir des belles choses, is a French movie starring the very talented, and absolutely gorgeous Isabelle Carré.     I was initially thinking about writing a post about different movies, preferably not blockbusters, who adressed multiple mental illnesses. To offer entertainement as well as thought provoking stories…. But Se souvenir des belles choses…… Continue reading Beautiful Memories…

The Gift…

When I found this short film on The Internets, the first thing that struck me was the numerous prizes it won. The story was directed by Julio Pot and produced by Cecilia Baeriswil. I think a lot of people will recognize themselves in the two cute characters. Most of us have lived something similar, unless…… Continue reading The Gift…

Polytechnique…

27 years ago, Québec was wounded in its history… A disturbed man entered a College, separated men from women, and slaughtered the girls. With all the madness going around in the world, 14 deaths and 14 wounded people could seem like a minor incident. But it scarred the province deeply. I know one one of…… Continue reading Polytechnique…

WP conspiracies… Or not!

This week, something weird happened to me. But let me start by explaining something that happened 18 years ago, changing my life forever. (I know, how dramatic uh?) So, in 1998, I went to the movie theater with some friends to see The Truman Show. I  loved the film, and thought that was about it…… Continue reading WP conspiracies… Or not!

Sparrows…

  Unfortunately, last night was the last for Tapis Rouge’s Nordic Film Festival… It was kind of cold outside, the movie was a little late (9 pm) and I hesitated a bit. But is was a co-production from Iceland and Denmark (ringing a bell?? :P) so I put furry socks on, and I went anyway. While…… Continue reading Sparrows…

Armi alive! (Armi elää!)…

  Second visit to the Nodic Film Festival last night… But before heading to the cinema, we made a stop at Nyks, a little bistro-pub on the corner of Ste-Catherine and Bleury streets. A nice place to have a bite, though a little bit loud to my liking. I had a bowl of squash cream and…… Continue reading Armi alive! (Armi elää!)…
