Often overlooked and overshadowed by its North American cousin, Canadian cinema has nevertheless produced some fascinating films and directors, including Atom Egoyan, Robert Lepage, Denys Arcand, Michael Snow and David Cronenberg. "The Cinema of Canada" contains 24 essays, each on a different film and divides itself into three distinct categories: English-Canadian cinema; Quebec cinema; and Aboriginal cinema. In so doing, it provides a fascinating historical account of the development of film and documentary traditions across the diverse national and regional communities in Canada. Among the many important films discussed are "Le Declin de l'empire americain" (1988), "I've Heard the Mermaids Singing" (1988), "Exotica" (1994), "Dead Man" (1995), "Le Confessional" (1995) and "Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner" (2001).
