Histoires d’hiver (Winter Stories)

Director François Bouvier
Year 1999
Run Time 105min
Winter Stories is a nostalgic story set in Montreal in 1966, where 12-year-old Martin (Joel Drapeau-Dalpe) eats, sleeps and dreams hockey. Martin's favorite team is of course the Montreal Canadiens, an enthusiasm shared by his Uncle Maurice (Denis Bouchard), who loves to spin tales of the team's glorious past. When he's not thinking about hockey, Martin finds himself having his first romantic thoughts thanks to schoolmate Vera (Maude Gionet) and having his horizons expanded when his bohemian English teacher introduces the class to 'protest music'.
