In the 1970's, in Quebec, everybody's was making movies? Don't have a budget, don't have a story, don't have actors? Who cares? Let's make movies! There were good ones : Mon oncle Antoine, JA Martin photographe, Les Ordres. But there were the bad, and the very very very bad. The bad ones have all the elements of Gina : lousy French speaking, men drinking beer all the time, vulgarity, very cheap settings. Viewing this, it's hard to believe that Denys Arcand will become one of the finiest movie director of Canada in the 1980's. But it's got the elements of a Arcand film. Perhaps it was fine to watch this in 1974 : today, it's seems very old and very boring.
