Ste-Marie-La-Mauderne is a small, depressed coastal village in Québec, where even fishing as an industry has died. Almost everyone is on welfare, including Germain Lesage. An option for most townsfolk is to move to the city, something that Germain refuses to do, even though his wife, Hélène, wants to at least consider it, just because her brother could provide her with a job. The Mayor, Réal Fournier, would sell out the townsfolk in his attempts to lure industry to the town, still with no takers. Part of their catch-22 situation in luring industry there is that there is no doctor, a condition made by one company owned by M. Dupré that would potentially locate his new plastic container factory there. As such, Germain and a few of his friends, Henri Giroux and Yvon Brunet, decide to reach out to every doctor in Québec to see if he/she can be enticed to move there. Due to a little police strong-arming, they get one nibble in the form of thirty-three year old Montréal plastic surgeon, Dr.... Written by
There was actually an English dubbed version of the movie which was very well done. Unfortunately it was only available on airline flights and for some reason they decided not to put it on the DVD release. See more »
There are two scenes at the Giroux dinner table where Henri asks if Lucie has an announcement. The scenes are supposedly days apart, yet each member of the family is wearing the same outfit and they are eating the same meal in each scene. See more »
This is one of those films you enjoy watching with a friend. It s funny in a nice way. You get attached to the village and somehow you'll start wishing you could live there. - This is the tale of a run down french Canadian village on a small island off the east coast of Canada is in need of a doctor in order to survive... The villagers try to seduce a city doctor into moving on the island. No sex... no drugs... no violence... (i can almost hear the "awwww"). But they will use whatever means they've got to try to convince him to stay. As they do, you see the people's hope growing and they all seem to be alive again. They put their differences aside and unite in their quest to find a doctor. Do not expect another "Doc Hollywood". This movie has an innocent charm about it... This movie has definitely seduced me!!!
