A little girl wittness the death of her mother- expressly killed through negligence by the woman supposedly nursing the invalid mother back to health. The coniving nurse in turn marries the child's father thereby taking the dead woman's place and becoming the little girl's stepmother. After unwisely revealing to the stepmother that she knows the reason for her mother's death; Arore is abused by her stepmother who hopes that in torturing the child she can keep her silent. The father, who is absent during the day farming the land, closes his eyes or refuses to believe his new wife is abusive when confronted by the sight of his miserable burnt and beaten child.

Life, cinema
16 June 2002 | by (Montreal, Quebec) – See all my reviews

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
