On St-Viateur last weekend for a family lunch, I noticed this filming and took a picture to show that there is always something happening in our neighbourhood. On our way to the table at the B&M restaurant (I know...not the most appetizing of names), I showed the picture to my husband, who informed me that the monsieur with the glasses and unruly hair was Xavier Dolan-Tadros. I pointed to the dog hiding behind the sign, looking as if he were waiting for his cue.
"Do you know who he is?" My husband asked.
"No," I said, as I took off my son's coat.
"He won a few awards at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival," he said.
"So why is he filming on St-Viateur outside the B&M restaurant?" I asked, "There must be more exotic settings elsewhere."
"Probably using every opportunity he has to keep learning," he said.
As I looked at the menu, I noticed the B&M served "les flotteurs" and erupted into laughter.
My husband asked me what was so funny, and I told him that they should have called the restaurant the M&B.
