Je me souviens


88 minutes – Drama
Release date: March 6, 2009
Canadian distributor: Atopia Films

The film is set in 1949, when Maurice Duplessis was premier of Quebec. It is somewhat based on the post-war labour movement and the growing “red scare” communism presented with the rise of the Soviet Union and the start of the Cold War. In the remote mining area of Abitibi, we meet Robert Sincenne. He might be a hero to his son, Louis, a charming kid to the cheerful dimples, but to the bosses of Sullidor Mining, the Catholic Church and the all powerful Duplessis, Robert is the enemy. A communist and free-thinker, Sincenne rivals fellow miner Richard Bombardier for the leadership of the mine union. When Bombardier dies suddenly and tragically, the entire mining community believes it was his wife, Mathilde, who killed him. Strong-willed and determined to avenge the accusation, Mathilde seduces the town’s union leaders and husbands of the women who started the rumor. As we rummage through the debris of revenge and time, a now grown Louis finds friendship with Nemesis, the daughter of Bombardier’s widow – who just might be his half-sister.
