Film Fan Fridays for Friday Jan 27, 2006

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!!

Lots of Canadiana in the house this week with homegrown release of Eve and the Fire Horse in regular theatres as well as having your chance to see some of 2005's best of Canadian film at this years Canada's Top Ten! Here this year's list of films:

C.R.A.Z.Y (dir: Jean-Marc Vallee)
Familia (dir: Louise Archambault)
A History of Violence (dir: David Cronenberg)
Horloge Biologique / Dodging the Clock (dir: Ricardo Trogi)
The Life and Hard Times of Guy Terrifico (dir: Michael Mabbott)
Memory for Max, Claire, Ida and Company (dir: Allan King)
La Neuvaine (dir: Bernard Emond)
A Simple Curve (dir: Aubrey Nealon)
Water (dir: Deepa Mehta)
Where the Truth Lies (dir: Atom Egoyan)

Many exciting picks this year, I know I am still kicking myself because I haven't seen C.R.A.Z.Y yet and it was one of the most talked about films at the festival this year. I did have the opportunity to see La Neuvaine which I found it very moving. Canada's Top Ten starts today, Jan 27 and runs until Feb 5/06. For more information go to: http://www.topten.ca/

Coming up next week, we have Oscar nominations on, Jan 31 can you believe it? I wonder who will be nominated. Not much longer to wait to find out!

Have a great weekend!
