This is a beautiful movie in many ways. Its the story of a love that will never be. The story of a women who is forced to marry an old greedy man in order to save her father from bankruptcy even though she's in love with another man.
This movie is a real heartbreaker. The sacrifice Donalda must face as a 19th century women is unimaginable. Karine Vanasse played the role of Donalda in a most dramatic way. You feel the pain she is going through. Every love moment, between her and her lover, is sheer beauty. Séraphin is truly an evil, monstrous, cruel, heartless man. A person you honnestly hate. There really aren't many more words that can accurately describe this son of a bitch. The actor [Pierre Lebeau] really played the part well. In fact, if I ever meet him in life...I might just wanna punch him.
The music set in this 200 year old world was amazing. Every time I heard the melody of Reverie, I almost feel like crying. As a muscicien myself, I emotionally understand the power of the music in this film.
I insist on the viewer of this movie to understand the french language. I'd never watch Citizen Kane in French. Never. Just like I'd never watch Séraphin in English.
I easily give this movie a 9/10
