"Frank Vitale is a genius."
-- David Beard, Cinema Canada
"a first-effort movie which really captures the imagination."
-- Jack Kapica, The Montreal Gazette

Frank Vitale pushes boundaries in this independent, controversial story from 1974 that clashes two different worlds: the low-rent bohemian areas of Boulevard Saint-Laurent and the middle-class suburbs of Montreal.

Frank plays a photographer living among the assorted outcasts, junkies, gay/bisexual friends and artists populating Montreal's Main street. Quieter and more introspective than most of his friends, Frank meets Johnny, a twelve-year-old kid looking to escape the boredom of the suburbs.

For Frank, this new friendship both renews and confuses him. While for Johnny, it offers the freedom he craves so much. But this relationship is not without perils, and it will be tested, both from within and without.

At times disquieting, "Montreal Main" is a cinéma vérité depiction of an offbeat generation, worlds apart from today.


"… humorous and surprising. It's a film which above all lives in its people…"
- Village Voice
