Storyline

In Abitibi, in 1948, Richard Bombardier, a miner,dies tragically on Saint-Valentine's Day night. The entire mining community believes it was Mathilde his wife, who killed him, which is not true. To avenge herself, Mathilde seduces Robert Sincennes and Roch Devos, the town's union leaders and husbands of Anita and Marguerite, who started the rumour. She becomes pregnant, not knowing if it was Roch or Robert who is the father! This vengeance does not help Mathilde who obliterates herself with alcohol. Anita does not forgive Rober, who exiles himself in the foreign legion to please his son Louis, who dreams of becoming a soldier like his childhood hero, Simon le Légionnaire. Robert brings Roch with him after Marguerite Devos throws herself at the mining boss, Iram Walker, whom she marries without love and lives a life of luxury and decadence with her artist friends. Anita lives alone and works as the night operator for the telephone company and where she follows the conversations between... Written by Atopia

Drama? This was funnier than a mere drama
20 March 2009 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

I went into this movie not knowing what to expect other than some sort of patriotic political drama. So it was with great surprise that I found myself (along with a couple of others in the theatre) laughing quite a lot. Indeed we are dealing with serious subjects here, workers rights in the mining industry, Québécois people still under the thumb of «les Anglais», Church and Government in bed together, working orphans, etc. But Forcier throws in lots of low-brow humor with some over the top stereotypical portrayals of Anglo-Franco relations and «syndicalisme». Of course there are also possibly too many «intimate moments» which get turned into ridicule. Somewhere after the halfway mark, the movie does get a little more tragic, as the consequences of bad choices come to the foreground, but there still remains some «humour jaune» moments. In the end, I was left with the impression of having seen a moving (literally) portrait of days past.

PS. Certain images will remain in my mind forever, one in particular competing with «Something about Mary» for best ever cinema goop shot.
