Any Canadian who has left home for Toronto can identify with this movie. The main characters, Peter and Joey, strike out from Nova Scotia in search of dreams in the big city. But as in any classic road movie, things never seem to work out as planned. Peter and Joey would serve as the models for countless characters in Canadian culture, including Bob and Doug McKenzie. Shot on 16mm for less than $90,000, Goin' Down the Road is a brilliant piece of neorealism.

The movie and the DVD are great. My own enjoyment of it was enhanced by the memoies of that hot Toronto summer night of July, 1970.
