Canadian 밤알바 직업소개소 is Starbucks won the 2012 Genie Awards for Best Original Screenplay and the Golden Reel for the highest-grossing Canadian film of the year. It also won the Best Canadian Film Award at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival. Possibly the best and by far the funniest of the cultural community films of the 1990s, it (briefly) reinvigorated Canadian cinema.
Lasse Hallstroms’ film based on Annie Proulx’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Shipping News basks in the often-forgotten beauty of Canada’s east coast. Reality, fantasy and memory are perfectly intertwined in this portrait of director Guy Maddins’ hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
On the fringes of society in a remote part of the French-Canadian countryside, the fragile relationship and unusual love lives of father and daughter are endangered by dark and unforeseen circumstances. A group of bankrupt Canadian punk rockers come together to remember a close friend they would have shot, or so the rumor goes. An emotionally immature underwater photographer returns home after an affair with his best friend, a deaf girlfriend, and unresolved issues with his wife that he left six months ago.
His mind slowly returns to the realm created by his illness, where he relives a vital part of his childhood. William, once an obese and depressed teenager, manages to survive his teenage years when he moves to the city and comes out as gay. In fact, he studied Canadian politics and international relations before embarking on a film career (winning a television competition in 1993 where he traveled the world making short films along the way).
Perhaps best known for his films Kongorama, especially M. Lazhar, which will make you laugh out loud. The highest-grossing Canadian film of 2013, the true biography of self-made strongman Louis Cyr is Canada’s rarest work, a historical biopic inspired by real life. In addition to recreating the atmosphere of Quebec cities like Montreal and Longueuil, Luis Saias’ film also showcases the importance of hockey in Canadian culture and the persistence of Quebec male stereotypes.
The following is a list of films made in the decades spanning a wide variety of genres, themes, and styles made in Canada. I chose not to include shorts, so don’t expect something like “Norman McLaren’s Neighbors” to appear on the list.
Some will consider the list populist and will choose only narrative films. When it comes to a list like this that consists of ten (or more) representative or top Canadian films, some people will try to make the list as representative as possible (by genre, genre, time period, etc.). My top ten list is a very extensive beast, including links to other great Canadian films and artists so we can do justice to the diversity of our cinemas. My list of feature films includes a selection of cornice films that I believe represent the diversity and creativity of Canadian cinema.
If you consider yourself a cinephile, this alphabetical review of the great Canadian films by film critic Linda Barnard will make you nod in agreement. The list, which is not included in the annual list of the top ten Canadian films released that year, was published in 1993, 2004 and 2015. TIFF did not provide respondents with a list of films to choose from.
We’ve also put our film department to the test by requesting NOW nominations for Susan Cole, Glenn Sumi, Norman Wilner, Radheyan Simonpillai and Kevin Ritchie for their selection of the best Canadian films of all time. The list named The Room (2015) the best Canadian film, followed by the Oscar-nominated Inflammations and the cult holiday classic A Christmas Carol (1983). The listings are available on their website, where you can also learn about each movie, and in some cases watch the entire movie, clip, or documentary about the movie.
There are British imports, classic and contemporary Canadian films, and strange American hits… like this wonderfully twisted 2019 murder mystery by Daniel Craig, which is the closest thing the service has to “going out of action” (I’ll take it!). The themes of freedom and power in the family are far from new, but Toomey’s sincere direction, the subtle animation of her crew, and Anita Doron’s subtle adaptation of the novel by Canadian writer Deborah Ellis round out a powerful story. With Denzel Washington as the pretender to the king and Frances McDormand as his lady, the black-and-white film is powerful and gripping.
The film features cameos from famous Canadians such as comedians Louis-Jose Hoodet and Rick Mercer, as well as actor Sylvain Marcel, known for his Familiprix drugstore ads. This film is also a perfect example of Canadian bilingualism at its best, as the film comes in two similar but different versions: English and French. This historical Canadian film is the first feature film ever made in the Inuktitut language and prides itself on its authenticity.
This is a 1970 classic that proved that British Canadians are capable of making films other than National Film Board documentaries. Rhombus Media has made some great music documentaries, but Thirty-Two Glenn Gould Shorts is an unexpected triumph that pushes the formal boundaries of the genre. This year’s Festival Center productions are I Love a Man in Uniform and Zero Patience, the first AIDS-themed musical to be approved by ACT UP. Writer-director William Phillips’ 2010 comedy Unarmed Western plays on Canadians’ reputation for being polite and friendly.
NNNNN Mr. Lazar is a tender and moving drama that captures the pulse of elementary school politics and Canadian immigration. From 1981 to 1987, director Trogy made two of the funniest adult films in Canadian cinema history, about the rise of the Italian population in Quebec society. Somehow, Bob Clark found time to make two iconic Canadian horror films in one year.
While 2005’s Brokeback is set in a fictional region of Wyoming, the film’s Rocky Mountains and lush evergreen forests belong to the Canadian Rockies and southern Alberta. Filmed at several locations in British Columbia and Ontario, it showcases the haunting beauty and remoteness of the icy northern landscape. There, she won Best Actress for Suzanne Clement and Queer Palm for Best LGBT Film at the festival.
In addition, we have proposed to the National Film Board of Canada that each feature film be paired with a French-Canadian short film that we offer for free viewing. Québec Film Ratings are NOT part of the CHVRS and are administered by the Québec Minister of Culture and Communications. The CHVRS came into effect in May 1995 based on proposals from representatives of the Canadian industry, the Filmmakers Association of Canada, and provincial classification committees (outside of Quebec). As stated on the Government of Ontario website, the Film Content Information Act 2020 no longer requires ratings for films shown in Ontario.
