Ticket Giveaway: "Memoire Des Anges" @ Ex-centris

Posted by Olivier / October 30, 2008

Midnight Poutine is giving away two tickets to "Memoire Des Anges", a Montreal film that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year and recently won a major award at the Festival du Nouveau Cinema. The film re-mixes clips and music from Montreal in the 50's and 60's to bring you back to an era when St. Catherine's neon signs lit up the night and St. Henri was a neighbourhood where working class francophones and anglophones tentatively co-existed. If you were lured to Montreal, like me, by the world of Mordecai Richler, or if you love seeing sides of this city that no longer exist, or if you just occasionally feel nostalgic for no good reason as you wander the streets, this film is for you.

To win the tickets, fill in the blank in the following song title taken from the film's soundtrack (a popular Quebecois song from the era): "Bozo les _____".

The winner will be announced Thursday morning. And make sure to go see it at the Ex-Centris soon, because the film may be closing Thursday night.

i saw this last week and it was incredible! the best part is how several decades later montreal still has the same feel that it seems to have had then. required viewing for anyone who loves this city.

Congratulations Brian, "Bozo les Culottes" is the correct answer, and a powerful little nationalist ballad.

Sorry Julien, you were a little late, but thanks for that cool link to the podcast, and make sure you go see the movie anyways...apparently the run has been extended to Nov. 6th.
