Storyline

In the mountain of the north of Montreal in the colonization period, Seraphin a greed man is mostly the only one to have some money between the inhabitants. He used it as an usurer to grab all the land of the poor people. Alexis who was in love with Donalda before she was forced to became Seraphin's wife, borrow him 200$ to help starting his farm. He's counting on a temporary government job to pay back the greed man but Seraphin will use his political position as a colonization's agent to make sure he won't get it.

Classic French-Canadian movie
18 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is a classic in French-Canada. It was followed by Séraphin (1950) and by a TV-series that had a huge success. It's about a man, Séraphin Poudrier, who's avaricious. He's married to a young woman, Donalda, and he's one of the powerful man in the village. Great way to depict the life in rural French Canada of the time.

If you liked it, you can also read the book of the same name by Claude-Henri Grignon.

Out of 100, I gave it 80.
