Having owned the two books for years, I was unaware of this film! Isn't it nice to stumble across things by accident at the Library. So many things in this film will give you that tickle of nostalgia - even some things you wouldn't expect. For example - I'm sure everyone grins when Coupland talks about the films produced by the National Film Board that were ubiquitous in Canadian classrooms. But I had no idea that that Aquiamarine film projector was also a Canadian classroom staple! Quite a good compliment to the books. Much enjoyment.
I loved it. I rolled on the floor laughing. I cried a bit too. Douglas Coupland is, according to my girlfriend, the greatest Canadian writer ever. I'm tempted to agree. So much wit to the square minute that you go dizzy, you can't take it all at once and you have to rewatch it.
The only weakness is that for something Canadian, it offers 2 percents of its content to Québec, and I'd love to hear about something else than the Referendums. End of complaint.
A remarquable achievement, from a remarquable mind. Douglas should get it translated in French now so that some peeps could enjoy this total gem.
I want more. I think I'll read his books now...
