Synopsis
Avoiding the trap of nostalgia, using both archival documents, fictions, current testimonies and extracts from a theatrical creation, Paul Tana paints an attached and nuanced portrait of the Italians of Montreal. From the first waves of immigration at the beginning of the century to the concert of the young rocker Aldo Nova, the film highlights, sometimes with humor, the contradictions of Italians here, deeply divided between the attachment to their homeland of origin and the need to be fully accepted by Quebec society.
