LA VRAIE NATURE DE BERNADETTE - Bernadette has a yen to chuck it all and go back to nature, in this French-language Canadian film. That's just what she does after carefully leaving her wedding ring where her affluent husband, a lawyer, can see it. She has bought a farm, complete with a run-down farmhouse and a live-in cranky old man. Soon, because of the wonderful effects that her sympathy and her outsider's perspective have, her neighbors perceive great improvements in their lives. They attribute these changes to something miraculous (perhaps taking a cue from her name), and hordes of needy people descend on her farm. Stars Micheline Lanctôt and Donald Pilon. 1972
RED - A young man finds himself tragically trapped between cultures in this drama that was filmed in the beautiful Canadian countryside. The young man is half-native and half-Quebecois; no matter where he goes, be it in the country, or the city, he cannot seem to fit in. As a result, he begins getting into trouble involving gangsters, fast cars, and loose women. Just before his early death, he gets involved in a surreal initiation rite. Stars Daniel Pilon and Genevieve Deloir. 1970
