Scott Pilgrim Isn't The Only Canadian Movie


Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, the story of a young Canadian in love with an American girl who must defeat her 7 former boyfriends in life and death battle, has been a popular movie. But it's not the only film that admits to being from the Great White North. Here are a few more...

The Trotsky (2009) is about a Montreal high school student who believes himself to be the reincarnation of communist revolutionary, Leon Trotsky. Not an uncommon occurrence in Montreal.

Bon Cop, Bad Cop (2006) is an action comedy. What happens when the body of a murder victim is found lying half in Quebec and half in Ontario? Whose police jurisdiction does it fall into? A cop from Toronto and one from Montreal must work together to solve the case. And, being a Canadian film, hockey is the killer's prime motive.

Fubar (2002) is a mockumentary about what happens when you grow up drinking beer in a garage band.

Les Boys (1997) is in French but you can read subtitles. A culturally important movie because it's about amateur hockey.

Gaz Bar Blues (2003) is also in French. A comedy/drama about the every day going-ons of a small, family run gas station.

Being so close to America, it has always been difficult for Canadians to develop their own sense of identity and cinema culture. But let's not forget one more classic Canadian film...
