Blanche, daughter of Emilie Bordeleau, leaves her small French-Canadian town and large family to go and live with her married sister and study medicine in Montreal, Canada. As it is the early 1930's, women are not allowed to become doctors and practice medicine. Blanche completes her nursing studies, then accepts a position in the far off Abitibi region in northern Quebec where a lack of doctors allows her the freedom to treat patients as any real doctor would. Here she goes through the heart ache of dealing with the stubborn attitudes of the chauvinistic pioneers. She comes head to head with a crooked logging boss and falls in love. Written by <>

I Loved Blanche !!
20 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

This will not be a review; rather a talk from the heart. I remember that I have watched Blanche through the second channel of our national TV, where it used to be aired early in the morning. I remember that was around 1996 or 1997, back when I was a teen. And I remember that I fell in love with (Pascale Bussières)'s image as (Blanche Pronovost) !

I adored every second of her. It was very sad watching a scene that didn't have her. I was fascinated by her sparkling eyes, cute face, and smooth voice. Not to mention her decorous costumes, and that oblique hat. I wished running into her, or any other girl like her, to live into those eyes, forever !

(Blanche Pronovost) wasn't less good. I can't forget her painstaking character, or her struggle with the priest, which was in fact a struggle between science and religious fanaticism. When they fought over which to build first; a hospital or a church, I still memorize her line: "Without hospital; you won't find prayers for your church.", what a great logic !

So I loved Blanche; the TV series, Blanche; the character, but not (Bussières) anymore. Strangely, after watching her in some photos from the series before writing this, I found out that she doesn't have any effect over me now. I even questioned myself "So this is who bewitched me once ?!". Maybe my taste differed. Or maybe hearts are illogical anyway !
