Seducing Doctor Lewis (La grande séduction) Reviews

  • Aug 21, 2018

    Mildly entertaining feelgood comedy is nicely made with a colorful cast of characters, but emanates the impression one has seen this all once before.

    The story makes sense as long as we believe how people can be suckers sometimes. Rather plaisant play. The game reach absurd levels enough to tickled the sides a few times. Sympathetic ensemble in a beautiful environment.

    Drôle, émouvant et une bonne réflexion sur les villages qui se meurent.

    Charming Québecois film that I thank the Toronto Public Library for stocking. (Note to all non-Torontonians: our current mayor is trying to privatize our library system, or if not that, then cut out its heart. I'm not sure that I would ever discover under-marketed Canadian films without our library system, which would be a shame because they only rarely disappoint.) So, about this movie itself: a very small, remote community is trying to land a factory, but the owners won't move there without there being a doctor in town. When the mayor packs up and leaves under cover of night, a local man attempts to convince the townspeople to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and show the newly arrived Dr. Lewis - exiled there as community service for a misdemeanour - the beauty and charm of small-town life. The ending is a little tidy for me, but overall it's a pleasure to watch. A movie you won't be sorry to have seen, if you can manage to track it down - check your local library first!
