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.

Compelling, Disturbing and Mesmerizing French Quebec Film.
27 December 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This fantastic remake to the classic french Quebec film, is absolutely outstanding. Not only is it one of the best remakes in french Quebec film history but one of the best remakes I have ever seen. Since I am from Quebec, we always like to see french Quebec films. And seeing that they had already done a remake to a classic film thats based on a true story, I was one of the first few to rent this movie at our local videostore. And I must I say Wow! What is there not to love about the movie? The acting is outstanding, the direction is perfect and the score fits in so perfectly. Im not over-exaggerating here but Aurore is a visual treat. However, its not for the faint of heart and the easily disturbed, because not only does this movie deal with child abuse but the whole atmosphere is so raw and realistic. I have never met one person who didn't cry watching this movie. I do however recommend this movie to all who want to know more about the story. Prepare yourself for a compelling, disturbing and mesmerizing french Quebec film.
