LES BONS DÉBARRAS
“Then a flower would grow… in the asphalt… not pullable, not breakable, not crushable…” The towering words of Réjean Ducharme and the pure eye of Francis Mankiewicz: a summit of poetry and intimacy that marked this great film for greatness. The film is an unforgettable portrait of a 13-year-old girl (Charlotte Laurier) who lives in an isolated house with her mother (Marie Tifo) and her intellectually handicapped uncle (Germain Houde). With its baroque lyricism and striking realism, this is nothing less than a masterpiece. Come celebrate its 40th anniversary with us.
