Go head-to-head with an icebreaker. Plunge down a twisting mountain gorge. Soar through the clouds in the nosecone of a jet, then speed along with a dog team as it races across a frozen Arctic lake. A sweeping, moving tribute to Canada's stunning geography and rich cultural heritage, Momentum leaps off your screen--and touches your heart. Filmed entirely in IMAX, this film wowed audiences from around the world when it premiered at Expo 92 in Seville, Spain, the greatest world's fair of the last quarter century.

    This does not do justice to the film: it looks like every other frame was skipped (the 48fps was turned into 24 before being transferred to video then digitised for this site?) and the 4:3 Imax frame is stretched to 16:9!!! Franchement!! p.s. I love Colin Low. :)

    En effet, très intéressant à montrer à une classe de français langue seconde au Québec. Connaissez-vous d'autres films dans le même genre à montrer à des immigrants en francisation? Merci!
