I saw this movie at the Canadian film festival in Sydney, Australia last year. It had me right from the start ..as you enter through Vancouver airport, which to me always signals that I've arrived home. There are such great Canadian things in this movie that maybe you wouldn't notice unless you've been away and on a visit home bought the largest box of Dad's oatmeal cookies you can to take back with you! It is difficult to tell what it means to be a Canadian to ALL Canadians as Canada is such a large diverse country and its people just as diverse but I think Douglas Coupland did a great job in sharing what it means to be Canadian to him. You might not identify with all the things he considers "Canada" but you will surely identify with some things and can appreciate the others. From hockey to Tim Horton's to ookpik (which I didn't get but when I told my parents about it my dad told me my mom had one) this movie made me laugh and cry as it made me a bit homesick for Canada and things Canadian. I'm heading home for Christmas and am ordering a copy to bring back with me to Australia and a second copy for friends that also live overseas and I know will appreciate a little slice of home..even if its home seen through someone elses eyes. Even my husband, who is Aussie, got a kick out of Coupland's Souvenir of Canada....and at the film festival they even served Kokanee to complete the atmosphere.
