Plot & Details

After a brief flurry of activity as a TV critic, Canadian director Jean-Claude Lord returned to films with The Doves. Lisa Thouin marries a rich boy, but still wishes to pursue a career as a singer. Her new in-laws do everything they can to help her, and in the process the groom is elbowed out of the proceedings. He turns to the only family member who'll listen to his plight: the standard "crazy uncle", played by Jean Duceppe (who'd previously essayed a similar character in the well-received Mon Oncle Antoine). Filmed in French, The Doves was originally released as Les Colombes.
