CotD: One year ago we saw the release of National Film Board of Canada’s “Sunday (Dimanche)”; in a couple weeks, it may win an Oscar. Watch it today and see if it is worthy!
Sunday (Dimanche) (2011) — National Film Board of Canada
After mass, the family gathered at Grandma and Grandpa’s house, as they did every Sunday. With everyone talking at once, it sounded like a family of crows cawing while perched on hydro lines. The town factory has closed its doors and, naturally, the adults can’t stop fretting about their money problems. On this particular Sunday, one of the village boys places a coin on the train tracks. Imagine his astonishment when, picking up the coin after a train has run over it, he discovers some amazing changes. Sunday, young filmmaker Patrick Doyon’s first film, is a magical tale that imparts important lessons about life as seen through the eyes of a child.
