"The tone of Mordecai Richler's story of life in the St. Urbain Street district of Montreal, a combination of sentimentality and pungent, accurately remembered sights and smells, is beautifully rendered in Caroline Leaf's subtle cartoon [The Street]. [..] Painted in muted browns, the film at times has a startling three-dimensional quality thanks to long 'dolly' shots which give the unbroken impression of a number of different, swooping, camera angles."
