Note: The subs synchronization isn’t perfect for this one, sometimes lines appear before the dialogue, I was able to improve the timings a bit, they were a lot worse originally but they need more work to get them perfect, I think they are OK like this but if anyone wants to improve them further comment below and I’ll post the video and subtitle file separately. Thanks.

    It’s criminal how neglected Quebecois cinema is! Rejean Ducharme was a legend
