Falling Over Backwards

In Mort Ransen's (Margaret’s Museum) endearing dramatic comedy, Mel, a middle-aged school teacher (Saul Rubinek) has split up with his wife and decides to move back to his old Montreal neighbourhood with his divorced father (Paul Soles). They form the perfect odd couple, even as they share a common sadness at their respective dead ends. They are shaken out of their state by the spirited French-Canadian landlady (Julie St-Pierre) who lives upstairs. Mort Ransen and his splendid cast bring these characters to life with a deep understanding of their foibles, frustrations and prejudices. (From https://tjff.com/films/falling-over-backwards/ )
