THE COMPANY OF STRANGERS - Movie

The Company of Strangers/Le fabuleux gang des sept

I love this movie from Canada. This 1990 movie is done with women who were not actresses and the director, Cynthia Scott, let the movie happen organically....no script.

I first caught some of this movie on IFC TV station with commercial interruptions.  I then checked it out of my "free" public library.  I am now listening to the director's commentary while the movie is running. Very worth the time to hear how she did this movie organically.  The women in this movie weren't playing parts - they were talking about their true lives in this special creation.   It took me a very long time searching the internet looking for a clip of this movie. And happened upon this website, which has the entire movie uploaded online to watch for free.  I sized it for my blog, but you can go to the site In the Company of Strangers and make the video any size you choose.  360p and 480p available.

Synopsis: In this feature film, 8 elderly women find themselves stranded when their bus breaks down in the wilderness. With only their wits, memories and some roasted frogs' legs to sustain them, this remarkable group of strangers share their life stories and turn a potential crisis into a magical time of humour, spirit and camaraderie. Featuring non-professional actors and unscripted dialogue, this film dissolves the barrier between fiction and reality, weaving a heart-warming tale of friendship and courage.
