The Canadian movie business has a fair share of remarkable flicks that will not only help you discover Canada, but also entertain you over a bowl of popcorn with friends.
‘C.R.A.Z.Y.’ is a light-hearted coming-of-age movie about the protagonist Zac Beaulieu and his 30-year journey coming to terms with his relationship with his family, God, and himself. Set in the French-speaking Quebec, C.R.A.Z.Y. went on to win eleven Genies ¬– the Canadian equivalent of the Oscars.
Watch ‘Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner’ to gain insight into the lives of the Inuit and to admire the stark, untouched expanses of the Canadian Arctic. It is the first film to ever be acted, directed and written completely in the Inuit language. The film went on to win several prestigious awards, including the Caméra d'Or at Cannes Film Festival.
To explore the length and breadth of Canada, take a cross-country road trip with the movie ‘One Week’ and fall in love with the spectacular Canadian backdrops. Travelling from Toronto to Vancouver Island, you will get a chance to discover the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, and Ontario.
Several famous Hollywood films were filmed in Canada as well. Brokeback Mountain was filmed against the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta. The Incredible Hulk, Mean Girls, and My Big Fat Greek Wedding had scenes set in Toronto. Even that favourite movie Titanic had some of its final scenes filmed in Halifax.
