Reclaiming the Canadian economy: a Swedish approach through functional socialism
In Vaudeville! no one is who he or she appears, including Xavier, a seventeen-year-old apprentice demolition man who claims to be an immigrant from Hungary. After Xavier falls into a hole, he suffers bizarre humiliations and eventually loses his job. Soon he and his singing frog are hired to perform in a vaudeville show in which violence and ugliness blend like a cartooni with comedy and music. Vaudeville!, Gaétan Soucy's fascinating tableau, dares us to look into the darkest sides of the human experience.
