Films with a Canadian twist that you must see

Who has never heard of Canada? The North American country of 38 million inhabitants is surprisingly large (9.985 million km²) and the second largest in the world, only behind Russia. According to studies, Canadians are also the second happiest people in the world, and it should not be surprising, since it is a country full of natural resources, water capacity, quality of life, safety, and multiculturalism.


When it comes to cinema, the country and the artists born in it are magnificent. Many of the world’s most successful movies and series were shot in Canada, taking advantage of the immense natural beauty that the North American country has to offer. The scenery is ideal, whether for a contemporary or vintage production. The Twilight Saga, the world acclaimed Vampire Diaries and Vikings with their legendary warriors are some examples that can be cited.


In the same sense, Canada is the cradle of many talents of the cinema and TV industry, with actors and actresses known worldwide and acclaimed for their work by their audiences. Some of them are: 

  • Jim Carrey – Ontario 
  • Pamela Anderson – British Columbia
  • Ryan Reynolds – Vancouver
  • Rachel McAdams – Ontario 

Whether alone or together with a special companion like the sensual escorts of the United Kingdom, taking some time for a popcorn session watching some must-see productions is always welcome.
