  Description     The film  
Italians first began immigration to Montreal at the beginning of the 20th century. In this 1961 film we are shown community life in the Italian quarter of Montreal. We are told that the men find it hard to get jobs, and the pay is lower than they expected. Soccer is a widely shared passion in the Italian community.
