Claude Jutra's sweeping portrait of village life in 1940's Quebec has been called one of the greatest Canadian films of all time. Recalling a time when the local general store was the crossroads of life, the film illustrates the way a young boy sees the world and those closest to him – first through the eyes of a teenager, and later, as events change him, through the eyes of an adult. Winner of Best Feature Film, Best Performance by a Lead Actor, and Best Direction at the Canadian Film Awards.
