Hailed as our generation's Spinal Tap Greg & Gentillon tells the story of two French-Canadian entertainers trying to make it big in English Toronto. They may be naive, they may have bad hair, but they have big ambitions. Encouraged by their manager Paul-Emile Emond, the two friends leave the safety of their hometown of Aylmer Quebec and set out for the big city. In their little white Mazda 323, they pack their only suits, their guitar, and all their hopes and dreams. A bilingual comedy unlike any other, Greg & Gentillon is a hilarious yet touching story of two best friends who give up everything to live their dream. Through their ups and downs, their triumphs and failures, they learn the true value of friendship and ultimately, the real meaning of success.

This film is the kind of phenomenon that here in Rouyn-Noranda, Qué., where we have an entire festival of this sort of thing (believe it or not!), namely the "Festival du 'DocuMenteur' de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue", which annually occurs right here in the Mockumentary Capital of the World, exclusively featuring such "mockumentaries", i.e. faked documentaries, for the sake of the humour of it all. (Just think of that witty French neologism, "docuMenteur", as an English punning word, "docuMendacity".) On those terms the film, which I viewed in one of its North American DVD editions (Alliance 102469) actually works, although it takes awhile to realise what the actors and others involved in producing it are striving for. This is not quite the kind of straightforward comedy, also, admittedly, a "mockumentary", that is only partly an equivalent, for deluded stand-up comedians, of what "This Is Spinal Tap", its sequels, and films and sound recordings imitating that cult classic, are for would-be, inept rockers who are "legends in their own minds" (and nothing more than that). "Greg & Gentillon" documents a friendship gone sour on the road as delusions and failure wreck those lads' relationship with each other. At least both of them still are young, with their adult futures ahead of them, once they come to their senses!Read more ›
