"[T]his is a movie of great warmth and charm, beautifully photographed in natural light by Michel Brault."

Product Description:

Young Benoit learns about life very quickly from his uncle Antoine who serves as everything from notary and shopkeeper to undertaker in a depressed region of Canada's backwoods. Set in 1940s Quebec, MON ONCLE ANTOINE is an alternately tender and haunting coming-of-age film that came to be recognized as one of Canadian cinema's greatest works.

Description by Criterion Collection:

Claude Jutra's evocative portrait of a boy's coming of age in wintry 1940s rural Quebec has been consistently cited by critics and scholars as the greatest Canadian film of all time. Delicate, naturalistic, and tinged with a striking mix of nostalgia and menace, Mon oncle Antoine follows Benoit, as he first encounters the twin terrors of sex and death, and his fellow villagers, who are living under the thumb of the local asbestos mine owner. Set during one ominous Christmas, Mon oncle Antoine is a holiday film unlike any other, and an authentically detailed illustration of childhood's twilight.
