    Pour célébrer la journée nationale du cinéma canadien, la succursale Cumberland est excité de vous montrer trois films  - dans une journée! Assoyez-vous pour profiter des aventures à l'écran. Basé sur le roman acclamé de Fred Pellerin, notre premier film, L'arracheuse de temps, a été un succès aux guichets en plus de recevoir 5 nominations aux Prix Écrans canadiens, notamment pour le scénario de Pellerin.

    Dans ce conte décalé, plein de magie et d’émerveillement, la petite ville de Saint-Élie-de-Caxton décide d'éliminer la mort une fois pour toutes. Lorsque l’incarnation de la Mort arrive dans le village, apparemment résolue à s’emparer de leurs âmes, ses formidables habitants décident de lutter pour leur immortalité du mieux qu'ils peuvent. Dans cette histoire, la mort n'est pas une fin, mais plutôt le début d'une incroyable légende.

    105 min. Français avec sous-titres anglais. Classification G.
