The Bottle (French: La bouteille) is a Canadian comedy-drama film, directed by Alain Desrochers and released in 2000.[1] The film stars Réal Bossé and François Papineau as Réal and François, two longtime friends who decide to recover a beer bottle, containing a paper on which they wrote down their hopes and dreams for the future, which they buried 15 years earlier in the back yard of Antoine (Jean Lapointe), a grumpy old man.[1]

The film's cast also includes Hélène Loiselle, Pascale Bussières, Louis Champagne, Sylvie Moreau and Jean-Pierre Ferland.[2]

Desrochers received a Genie Award nomination for Best Director at the 21st Genie Awards.[3] At the 3rd Jutra Awards, Papineau was nominated for Best Actor, Loiselle was nominated for Best Actress, and Moreau was nominated for Best Supporting Actress.[4]
