A Canadian movie with music by John Coltrane; few movies explore the feeling of entering adulthood like this one but in addition to the story, the music by itself makes this film memorable. Critic Robert Daudelin stated “At last we were confronted by a film which really belonged to us, one in which we were happy to recognize ourselves and see ourselves close up. [It] was (and remains) the image of our most recent awakenings.” Le Chat dans le sac received the Grand Prix at the 1964 Montreal International Film Festival.(+The main movie with be preceded by two short film, one short late masterpiece by Norman McLaren, Pas de Deux. And the second, Grounded – A Rock Climbing Documentary, one is a short documentary made by Islander Nathan Carter).
