Storyline

At the end of the 19th century, Emilie Bordeleau, daughter of Caleb Bordeleau, decides she wishes to continue her education. She faces great opposition from her small minded entourage, but her spunk and verve win out and she becomes a school teacher. Eventually she falls in love and marries one of her students and they move to Shawinigan and have a whole bunch of children. Though her marriage is based on passion, happiness eludes Emilie, whose husband is an irresponsible lout with a drinking problem. The only job he seems able to hold down is as a lumberjack up north, where his wife and kids cannot follow. Written by <griffe@graphisme.com>

My deepest apologies to all die-hard fans
18 January 2006 | by punked_up_shiznezSee all my reviews

Unfortunately, this series was rather boring. I had to watch it in my grade 11 and 12 french classes. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love french, it was after all my first language, but this is a french soap opera, which is not really my sort of thing. I understand that in those days, there wasn't really much to do other than have kids and die, but I think it's highly unnecessary to make an entire 20 film series out of it. I would rather read Petit Prince (Antoine De St. Exupery) any day! However, if you do enjoy soap operas, and can understand french, well go for it: dive into the world of Emilie Bordeleau. And if you enjoyed Les Filles De Caleb, I recommend reading Maria Chapdelaine (I'm an unsure of the author).
