"Game Seven" is the story of a typical 13-year old Canadian boy. Going on is Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Montreal Canadians and the Chicago Blackhawks. The film takes us through this boy's "struggles" just to get to listen to the game.
Perhaps the simple plot would lead you to believe there isn't much substance to this little gem of a short film. However, if you're a Canadian film nut, you'll appreciate the humour and perhaps look back at your own childhood, thinking of how important hockey was to you. Of course I am perpetuating a stereotype here by suggesting that every Canadian is head-over-heels for hockey. Nonetheless, I think it is fair to say that any Canadian can appreciate the passion a young boy has for the game.
It may sound simple and trite, but it is remarkably funny and so truly representative of Canadian culture. I give it 9 out of 10 - pretty good for a 16 minute film!
