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

Monotony meets Comedy
25 August 2009 | by MeerkatManorSee all my reviews

Probably one of the worst films I have ever seen. The script is incredibly tedious and heavy handed where characters speak in as natural and unrehearsed a manner as a priest on Christmas eve. In fact the preposterous and cumbersome writing goes to such an extreme that it often had the audience brimming with fits of laughter. The cast, many who have excelled in other features, struggle and fail to deliver their lines or characters with any level of veracity SAVE for the actress who plays Mathilde. Perhaps it is because her role is such a caricature that her over the top portrayal does not jar. The inclusion of Liam (by Roy Dupuis) sends this movie in the absolute stratospheres of divine comedy. How on earth he selected this role let alone played it with a straight face boggles the mind. In conclusion the only reason this movie does not deserve the lowest of scores is twofold: 1 as a lesson in how NOT to mold characters and 2 for its beautifully unintentional hilarity.
