“Hoisted with one’s own petard” is the proverb that propels this short, funny film, which serves as an excellent starting point for an exploration of adages, especially those that have originated in Quebec and refer to a specific time and place in its culture. The Quebecois accent and traditions are ever-present throughout the film. Beginning a discussion using well-known proverbs can lead to study of other subjects for French-language, history, personal development or ethics courses. (Film in French, useful for teaching French as a Second Language.)
