Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This is only the third feature produced by the National Film Board of Canada in its commendable attempt to foster the development of a distinctively Canadian media "voice." To that end, the projects chosen initially were "uncommercial" and highly personal visions by new directors. In this film, the first by Gilles Groulx, an introspective young Quebecois man ponders what it means to be committed to the cause of independence for French-speaking Canadians. He is less of a bomb-thrower than a thinker, but his commitment is firm nonetheless. When he discovers that his girlfriend is not nearly so obsessed with the cause as he is, he travels into the wintry countryside to hash things over with himself.
