TIFF Recap: Day 6

Films seen Tuesday, September 9th …

Maman est chez le coiffeur
Completed my trifecta of French-Canadian coming of age stories set in the 60s, each with different approaches and styles. This one was more family-focused and grounded/realistic, but not without many moments of humor. The three children of the film’s family each had their own issues to deal with, and the story felt very genuine.
7/10

Short Cuts Canada Programme 3

  • Pat’s First Kiss – the animation style was jarring at first, but then kinda neat. A funny story of the creepy encounter that gives this film its title. 6/10
  • Forty Men for the Yukon – an interesting and humorous look into the lives of a couple of old guys in a tiny Yukon town. 6/10
  • Bedroom – a 15-minute take of a couple in bed discussing their dysfunctional sex life; serious tone, but also with very funny moments. 6/10
  • Midi – I didn’t really get what was going on, and it only made a bit of sense after re-reading the description afterwards. 4/10
  • Passage – now that’s an awkward sexual experience. I still wonder if the final scene is frustration or revenge. 7/10
  • Sunday – not sure what to make of this one. The build up was good and the ending was cool, but I don’t fully understand how they are connected. 6/10
  • Green Door – very funny story of mistaken identity and unrequited love. 8/10
