Séraphin: Un Homme et son péché


128 minutes – Drama
Release date: November 29, 2002
Canadian Distributor: Alliance Atlantis Vivafilm

Based on the 1933 novel by Claude-Henri Grignon, Séraphin: Un Homme et son péché (Séraphin: Heart of Stone) is set in the 1890s in rural Quebec. Donalda (Karine Vanasse) is madly in love with the dashing Alexis (Roy Dupuis), but their romance is put on hold when he takes off to seek his fortune. Her father (Rémy Girard) is having trouble keeping his business going and goes to Séraphin (Lebeau), the town’s mayor, for help. This turns out to be a big mistake. Séraphin, who controls most of the village and takes delight in pushing others to ruin, demands the hand of Donalda in marriage as the price for his help. This being a Thomas Hardy-esque style Victorian drama, things turn out very badly when Alexis returns. A remake of Un Homme et son peché (1949), director Charles Binamé remains faithful to the Québec classic without making it seem dated. – Essential Guide to Canadian Film

Séraphin: Un Homme et son péché won a number of Jutra Awards as well as the Golden Reel at the 2003 Genie Awards.
