A SENSE OF HUMOR (LE SENS DE L’HUMOUR)

2011, Alliance Vivafilm, Dir: Emile Gaudreault

Michel Cote steals the show as Roger Gendron, a thickheaded yokel who takes a couple of standup comedians hostage (Louis-Jose Houde and Benoit Briere) when they poke too much fun at him during a performance at a local bar. But keeping wisecrackers under lock and key has its benefits, and Roger soon realizes he's gaining - shock! - a sense of humor. This winning comedy about those who are comedy tone-deaf is Quebec’s biggest box-office success in 2011! In French with English subtitles.


California Premiere!

FUNKYTOWN

2011, Seville Pictures, 132 min, Canada, Dir: Daniel Roby

Baed on the life of TV celebrity and disco-scene fixture Bastien Lavallee, Quebecois director Daniel Roby’s slick telling of the proverbial fast lane in 1970s Montreal is a must-see for lovers of BOOGIE NIGHTS or SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER. Bastien (Quebec star Patrick Huard) lives a life too quick, risky and drug-fueled for his own good, and with the changing cultural landscape of Montreal through the Parti Quebecois coming to power, he finds the sparkling disco lights fading and his world spiraling dangerously out of control. Incredibly successful upon its January release in Quebec, FUNKYTOWN was the province’s top box-office title for the first half of 2011! In French with English subtitles.
