Movie Info

Nostalgia permeates this look at the Canadian pop-culture museum installed in a typical British Columbia bungalow by artist Douglas Coupland. Adapted from Coupland's best-selling series of similarly titled books and focusing on a typical Canadian home stripped and re-painted before being filled with a variety of such undeniably Canadian items as bilingual cereal boxes and Terry Fox memorabilia, the documentary also provides a springboard for Coupland to ponder Canada's national identity while focusing on the artist's relationship with his father and his country's ever-shifting relationship with their neighbor to the south -- the United States. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Souvenir of Canada

I like Doug Coupland more than I liked his film. Maybe because, as an American, I couldn't quite connect with the inside jokes and subtle humor(?). I only vaguely remember Terry Fox, I've never had Molson beer, and I thought a 'Canadian Stubbie' was an endearing reference to Michael J. Fox. (Who knew!?)

This documentary is like an inside joke for all Canadians. Douglas Coupland hollows out a house and fills it to the rafters with Canadian minutiae. He never quite acheived his goal of getting to the heart of Canadian identity and this film seems a little less than satisfying on the whole.
