Elvis Gratton : le king des kings

Québec (Canada)
French, English

Elvis Gratton wins the Elvis Presley impersonation contest and a trip to Santa Banana. Accompanied by his wife Linda, they spend a week in the tropics. A week full of adventures and unforeseen incidents. Back in Quebec, Elvis is determined to set our society’s moral standards straight. Will our national hero of the bulge succeed in reforming society in his own way? For there’s an Elvis Gratton sleeping in every Quebecer…


“A searing critique of the federalist essentialist narrative and right-wing conservative thinking, this film questions the Quebecois condition of identity and warns of the dangers of self-forgetfulness in the drive to become like the Other and refuse the multiplicity of belonging.” (Christian Poirier)
