Storyline

Le coeur a ses raisons is a breathtaking parody of some popular TV drama series (soaps), a tragical family saga with unbelievable intrigues and filled with completely absurd characters. The story takes pace in Saint Adrews. Brett Montgomery is a rich businessman, head of a large cosmetics company. He shares the control of the family empire with his evil twin brother Brad. Brett's wife Criquette also has a twin sister, Ashley, a registered nurse. Le coeur a ses raisons opens up to a completely popped out universe where, pushed to extreme limits, one can witness the love intrigues, the family tragedies, the power struggles, the treachery, the plotting, the stories of adultery and where is also played the classical struggle between good and evil.

Parody of soap operas with glimmers and absurdity !
20 February 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This show is something else. In french with no sub titles (hopefully they could make it for other languages, at least English!) but something fun to watch if you desire something completely twisted.

With the acting of Marc Labrèche, this show becomes a fantasy in the world of soap operas. There is no way to predict what is gonna happen and yet you know what's gonna happen.. or almost... and it's almost something wrong and politically incorrect, something you'd never really see on television..

This is a gem of absurdity for the ones which can digest the dosage. And a bit 'salty' if you like sweet water.
