Séraphin: un homme et son péché (Heart of Stone) Reviews

  • Oct 30, 2013

    A very pretentious and melodramatic film that takes a good novel ,and butchers it to the point of pointing out all the subtleties and removing everything that was obvious. It's a soap opera with no style, class, or intelligence whatsoever. The actors of course do the best they can with a terrible script and so does the director. However, the score is award-worthy. The script is so muddled between criticizing avarice,the troubles of arranged marriage, and a character portrait of a wounded character. It takes away from Canadian cinema although box-office numbers say otherwise even though the actor and the score deserve so much better.

    A screen adaption about an uscrupulous man using his wealth to dominate a small community town in Québec. The pace of this film was slow and not quite gripping.

    Realisation touchante de Charles Biname, avec une approche beaucoup plus approfondie au niveau de la psychologie des personnages, que le film des années 50.
