    Beschreibung "This study examines the role of nostalgia in contemporary Quebec cinema through the analysis of two recent coming-of-age films set in the 1960s: Maman est chez le coiffeur (Léa Pool, 2008) and C'est pas moi, je le jure! (Philippe Falardeau, 2008). While the "nostalgia film" has been roundly criticized for promoting a superficial engagement with history, and a dangerous withdrawal from the present, I argue that in the context of Quebec, it should be understood as performing important critical work. Given the long and influential ties between the coming-of-age film, the family romance, and filmic nostalgia in Quebec to the national imaginary, I argue that these films reflect broader shifts in the state of cultural memory. Far from foreclosing a consideration of the future, films that creatively re-imagine the past enable new and empowering engagements with it. With these issues in mind, I go on to argue for a more measured consideration of the potential of nostalgia itself." (Information des Anbieters)
