Screening at MoMA as part of the Film exhibition Canadian Front 2009.
2009. Canada. Directed by Émile Gaudreault. Written by Gaudreault, Ian Lauzon. With Louis-José Houde, Michel Côté, Rémy Girard, Patrick Drolet, Caroline Dhavernas. From the whizz-bang opening credits to the happily satisfying ending, Fathers and Guns is a comic delight. A box office phenomenon in Quebec, the film is packed with Montreal cops, slimy gangsters and mob lawyers, and, last but not least, fathers and sons who (supposedly) hate one another. A Hollywood remake is in the works, so grab this rare chance to see the hilarious original. In French; English subtitles. 107 min.
