Mon amie Max

Edition 1994
106' - 1994 - Drama - Dialogue: French
Director: Michel Brault Composer: François Dompierre With: Geneviève Bujold, Marthe Keller, Johanne McKay
It's 1967, and the flighty Max and the well behaved Catherine are best friends. They both study piano at the Quebec City conservatory, and at the age of fifteen Max is awarded the first prize in the year-end competition. That same evening, she tells her mother she's pregnant. Her mother insists that Max give up the baby , thus triggering a long and painful decline from which Max will only emerge twenty-five years later. It's 1992, and Max returns to Quebec. With her friend Catherine, transformed by a brilliant career, she tries to find the son whose absence has destroyed her life.
