Yes, I agree with the precedent comment. The movie is totally insignificant and awful. The melodrama is boring. Nothing to compare with the theatrical play. But, I don't agree with the external position of the comment. Aurore is not only a movie for Quebec but, spinning around the emergence of identity, a starting point for the creation of a modern myth. The movie is nothing else than a transcription of the myth, an insignificant reading, trying to accomodate the still-living Telesphore Gagnon and the public ( a public who accepts everyday soaps and soaps). Based upon real facts ( yes, in the witnesses declarations, nobody noticed, yes), the movie had crystallized poorly for one of the last time (before the play adaptation of Cyr) the emergence of childhood and identity in Quebec. It's impossible to negotiate this case ( 47 ecchymoses of all ages on the body , etc is impossible here)with the sacro-sainte distance of the cinema purist. Waiting for a movie with, about Aurore Gagnon with powerful screenplay and acting! Arnaud LaRuelle
