魁北克隨自由派上場,逐漸脫離保守思想,然而社會是否已做好準備?人民俯拾的是自由主義的遺禍,還是真的得到一種「最好的釋放」?同樣由米修布洛特掌鏡,故事闡述13歲的Manon與母親Michelle,以及智力不正常的舅父Ti-Guy在小鎮生活,三人在經濟的邊緣掙扎生存,Manon逃學、排斥追求母親的老警察情人Maurice、不屑上流,拒絕體制,也拒絕成為體制中被忽視或被看顧的一群。她暴烈與強悍的個性早已填補父親「缺席」的形象而不自知。終日酗酒的Ti-Guy藏着鍾情貴婦的心事,Manon卻半推半就讓他的好夢成了一夜的終夢,不惜斬掉母親與情人的情絲,成為父權的替身。女孩的敏感早慧把現實世情看得比成年人更透徹殘酷,當鬧鐘的秒針滴溚滴溚地劃掃過去,這一覺終究可安然地擁着母親一同睡去,哪怕生命將有更多的不安,也要在邊緣建構、主宰屬於自己的世界。是次放映2013年修復版本。

As the liberals assume power, Quebec is gradually ridding of its conservative mindset - without society in general getting ready for it. While the ailments of liberalism are commonplace, one may doubt if the riddance of conservatism is really that good. Also filmed by auteur Michel Brault, this tale chronicles the lives of the members of an impoverished small-town family – the sensitive and precocious thirteen-year-old Manon, her mother Michelle and her intellectually disabled uncle Ti-Guy. Manon plays hooky from school, rejects the old cop Maurice who courts her mother, despises status, refuses the system and refuses to be one of those ignored or pitied by it; unbeknownst to her, she replaces the absent father-figure in her life with her own volatile and defiant disposition. As excessive drinker Ti-Guy quietly covets his family's wealthy female neighbour, Manon takes up the role of the man in the family as she plays a part in letting things happen for her uncle – for a night and that night only, and severs the relations between her mother and her mother’s suitor. Knowing better about the harsh realities of life then the grown-ups around her, when Manon can finally sleep with her mother and have her love, she decides to take control and build a world of her own as she listens to the clock ticking, though life ahead may by ever more daunting.Restored version in 2013 will be presented in this screening.
