Maurice Richard: Histoire d'un Canadien

Rotten Tomatoes:

THE ROCKE What a sorry sight,

what a tragedy!

Crowds are ransacking

the streets of Montreal.

St. Catherine St is being looted.

We might not be able

to broadcast

the end of the game

which was interrupted

after the first period.

There's no reason

why we cannot finish this game.

There's a riot outside.

We cannot afford to lose.

This is Detroit!

It's the end of the goddamn season!

We want everybody out.

The game is over!


I am first and foremost

a hockey fan myself,

and I'm telling you right now,

this doesn't smell good.

They couldn't have picked

a worst time.


those hockey fans out there,

hockey fans who have spontaneously

transformed themselves

into looters and vandals

have all but forgotten

that the Canadiens

are trying to keep Detroit

out of first place.

Montreal, 1937

- The Duplessis Era -


We're meeting at my place.

They're spreading rumours of layoffs.

Don't believe them.

They're trying to scare us.

So they can earn

more money off us.

They blame the Depression,

but it's to intimidate us.

I can't.

See you tonight.

It's just hockey.

You don't have to come.

Need a hand?

Lucille, you're 13 years old.

We're 17.

You got heart. I like that.

I heard you work

'cause your folks are in need.

Is that right?

That's a shame. But hey,

I guess

at least you have a job.

What did you and Lveill

talk about?

Someone saw you

and Lveill talking.

Now, what did Lveill want?


After your shift,

you stay for the trash

in the back.

First line...

Maurice, Laurier,


Georges, St-Onge...

Stuart wants to coach the Royals.

The only team that beat us

is Auto Parts.

They're bigger,

so we have to outskate them.

I want to see you move!

Get going!

Hurry up!

Come on, Maurice!

Don't give up, guys! Keep at it!

Keep going!

Way to go!

You can do it!

Get over here!

Here, I said!

43 wins in 46 games...

That's a season

you'll always be proud of.

You'll crow that

for an entire season

10 punks from Lafontaine Park

terrorized the junior league.

But believe me...

Every time you start to brag,

people will ask you:

Did you win the finals?

Right now, it's no.

You have two minutes

to change the outcome.

This is about who you are!

Got it?

Bertrand, James, St-Onge,


Philippe! Let's go!

Don't talk to me!

Maurice! Maurice!

Go, Maurice!

Help yourselves!

Want to dance?


- I'll show you.

- No.

- It's easy.

- No.

You can be such a moron!

My brother might not like me

being alone with you.

Don't you like parties?

You're not very chatty.

I don't make small talk.

Will you tell my brother

I kissed you?

World War ll -

He'll be right out.

Georges! Georges!

- Mr Norchet?

- What?

May I talk to you?

Mr Norchet, I'd like...

to ask your...

permission to marry

your daughter, Lucille.

Is there any...?

Did you know...?


Why have a freezer if...?

Did you know...?


Look, Maurice...

How will you provide for her?

You're a swell guy.

But you're asking a father

to marry his daughter

to a machinist.

He's going to play for the Habs.

What do you mean?

He's been invited

to their training camp.


didn't you break your ankle?

It healed well, Mr Norchet.

And an arm this year?

No, that wasn't...

The army rejected you.

The RCAF don't even want you

as cannon fodder.

Think the Habs will sign you?

It's just a try-out.

I had a good season.

I like you.

But as far as we're concerned...

Mr Norchet...

Last spring you were off

to fight Hitler.

Now you're joining the Habs.

What's next? Prime Minister?
