Every morning, at eight o'clock precisely, for a year …
Every morning, at eight o'clock precisely, for a year straight, Jean-Pierre photographs the same street corner of a popular Montreal neighborhood: a snack bar, a bus stop, a young maple smothered by concrete and banal but unique activity of everyday life. Inspired by these photos, and without ever having seen the real street corner, Marc wrote the novel. Little by little, through these photos and this novel, the personalities of Marc and Jean-Pierre unveil themselves. The banality of the corner of the street, betrayed by the staging of one, will be transformed by the fantasies of the other. A story both funny and dramatic, which follows the highs and lows of creation and merges with that of two men who are having a hard time adjusting to being their thirties as well as the trials and tribulations of their love lives.

A quiet painter, separated from his wife for a year, receives a suitcase in the mail from his mother, whom he hasn't seen since infancy. He believes she abandoned him to his wealthy, paternal grandparents. The suitcase contains mementos and a diary, a long letter to him, written over the years, with details of her youth, her first job as a pianist at a cinema, the coming of talkies, her marriage, and how he came to live with his grandparents. As he reads through the materials and her story comes to life, his son Antoine, who's about 10 or 12, tries to break through his father's silence and sorrow by taking matters into his own hands.

Le film transcende l'anecdote en plongeant dans un univers farfelu et insolite, plein de fantasmes, d'imagination, et de gags visuels et sonores. Gabriel Arcand s'impose avec un rôle taciturne où il laisse parler son visage et son violoncelle. Un exemple parfait du ton de la "maison ACPAV" à ses débuts, à la recherche d'une personnalité plutôt que de prouesses techniques.
