Trivia

The original version was around 3 hours, but was cut to 2 hours for its release, at the demand of the France producers. In 1983, Jutra restored the film to its original length, making his cut on video to fit the television medium, and it was thus broadcast on Quebec pay-TV. See more »

Life in early Canada
3 January 2000 | by (Glen Ellyn, IL) – See all my reviews

Genevieve Bujold, this great Canadian actress, is Elizabeth Rolland, who, while sitting by her dying second husband, recalls her first bad marriage to the Lord of Kamouraska, and his murder by her lover, the exiled American George Nelson. This story of love, lust and murder plays in the backdrop of mid-nineteen century small town and wilderness Canada.
