Hochelaga, Land of Souls (Hochelaga, Terre des Âmes)

French-Canadian writer-director François Girard’s ambitious and beautifully sprawling new film (only his sixth in nearly three decades) spans three centuries of Quebecois history. Starting out with an archaeological dig in a contemporary sports stadium, the film soon spirals back to the 17th century and a romance between a young Algonquin woman and a French trapper, before merging into the rebellions of 1837, when French patriots fought to escape the English redcoats. Hochelaga is a wonderfully structured historical fantasia rich with depth and ambition.
