The top five must-see Canadian films of all time

  1. I’m guessing there aren’t many true Canadians, to judge by this list. Have only heard of two of them; where would one go about finding them to view, even if one wanted to?

  2. I don’t really have an issues with any of your choices per se, but I would like to add that a movie like One Week should have earned a spot on your top five. This sweet, funny and touching film takes place in many locations across the great Canadian landscape, it features wonderful Canadian actors and even some Canadian musicians and has an incredible soundtrack featuring only Canadian musicians. The main character takes a journey across Canada and we go on that journey with him. You can’t get much more Canadian than that!!!
