On August 31, production wrapped up for the upcoming coming-of-age film Frisson des collines, which was directed by Richard Roy. The film's release is scheduled for spring or summer 2011.
The film's story takes place in 1969 and the three leading characters - who are all three kids - try to raise hell together. They do this in order to escape from the monotony of life in a village in Quebec. Each of the character will try, at the same time, to make a transition towards adolescence. As for Frisson, a young boy who recently lost his father, his dream is to go to Woodstock in order to attend to a concert. In fact, because he wants to get the autograph of Jimi Hendrix, his idol, Frisson will try to find the money for the trip.
After a round of auditions, the boy who was chosen to play Frisson is Antoine Pilon.
The film also stars Evelyne Brochu, Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge, Antoine Bertrand, Anick Lemay, Geneviève Brouillette, Patrice Robitaille, Paul Doucet, Rémi-Pierre Paquin and Jean-Nicolas Verreault.
