Some have been here for a few years, others are freshly arrived from Tunisia, Syria, Burundi, Vietnam or Mexico. All are students in Fulvie Loiseau’s class at the Commission scolaire de Montréal’s Centre William-Hingston. She is teaching them French using readings about love. Made in the direct cinema tradition, La langue est donc une histoire d’amour is a warm, empathetic and poignant immersion in an ad hoc microcosm where adult immigrants absorb not only a language but a country, traditions and culture, and earnestly share their hopes and fears.
