The Dame in Color (French: La Dame en couleurs) is a 1985 Canadian drama film directed by Claude Jutra. It was entered into the 14th Moscow International Film Festival.[1]


La Dame en couleurs is set in an insane asylum administered by nuns. Into this harsh place is dumped a truckload of children who soon find an entrance to a long-forgotten underground passage beneath the hospital. There, free from the strict control of the nuns, the children can let their imaginations run free, creating a mystical world of primitive mysteries and cult-like rites.
