Storyline

The year is 1909. In the village of Sainte-Philomène de Fortierville, Marie-Anne Caron, wife to Télésphore Gagnon, gives birth to their second daughter, Aurore. The child grows up in a loving and happy family, but in 1918 her mother dies of tuberculosis. Shortly after, Télésphore Gagnon decides to remarry, having fallen under the spell of his beautiful cousin, Marie-Anne Houde. Marie-Anne is not the devoted stepmother everyone takes her to be, however. Following the death of Aurore, a coroner's inquest reveals that the young girl had died of blood poisoning, brought on by the horrific abuse she suffered at the hands of her stepmother. The sensational trial which followed these revelations had a profound and lasting impact on Québec society. Aurore depicts an almost-forgotten period and social milieu of Québec's history, finally giving voice to those who, at the time, knew what was going on but preferred to remain silent.

Excellent Movie
23 January 2006 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

Between this one and the original; this version is excellent in every way. I went to see it at the cinema when it came out and now I own it on DVD and can't get enough of it. I watch it at least once a week. Every time I watch it, I can't help but feel so bad for the little girl who goes through so much abuse by her stepmother and her very own father. It's so sad and such a tragedy is still going on today in this world as we speak. Unfortunately, this problem will always be a huge problem. We should try harder to work together; to stop this from going on everywhere in this world. "Let's Stop The Violence" now before it's too late. How many more children have to suffer and die; and at such a young age too?? They don't deserve to be treated like this; nobody does. So, let's work together to put an end to it once and for all.
