The Great Ordinary Movie
Available on iTunes
Le Grand Film ordinaire features Le Grand Cirque ordinaire, a collective theatre group founded in Montreal in 1969 that used improvisation and drew on traditions of vaudeville and the Commedia dell’Arte. The film had been intended as a documentary about the group but eventually became an extension of the original staging of T’es pas tannée Jeanne D’Arc, in which scenes from everyday Quebecois life are interwoven with the theatrical circus fable about Joan of Arc in Quebec.
Starring Paule Baillargeon, Jocelyn Bérubé, Raymond Cloutier
