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.
