Montreal by Night

Montreal by Night


Also available

This short film showcases the city of Montreal on a summer's night. What was once a small Indian village is presented as a pot-pourri of contrasting sights and sounds. It is North America's second largest port and, after Paris, the world's largest French-speaking city. With its warehouses, offices, homes, clubs and amusement parks, the city serves as a bright backdrop for a happy couple out on the town.

    The good old days in a great city. It's still great, today. Toronto? Not so much.

    Hey NFB it's time to re-do this film in it's entirely based on the night life in Montreal now in 2012! I would love to see the difference.
