Product Description

Amazon.ca

Véritable classique de la culture populaire québécoise, Les Belles Histoires des pays d’en haut, depuis leur parution originale dans le roman de Claude-Henri Grignon en 1933, ont inspiré de nombreux créateurs. Ayant donné naissance à un feuilleton radiophonique et à trois adaptations cinématographiques, c’est pourtant peut-être à la télévision que ces Belles Histoires ont su trouver le plus d’écho.

Dans le village de Ste-Adèle, dans les Laurentides, en 1890, en pleine colonisation du nord du Québec, le maire Séraphin Poudrier (Jean-Pierre Masson), épouse de force la belle Donalda (Andrée Champagne) pourtant amoureuse du jeune et vigoureux Alexis (Gabriel Gascon). C’est autour de ce canevas romantique que les Belles Histoires racontèrent la vie quotidienne du village et donnèrent naissance à des personnages attachants et désormais mythiques : le curé Labelle (Paul Desmarteaux), le père Ovide (Pierre Daigneault) et bien sûr Séraphin, l’avare.

Diffusés de 1957 à 1970, les 495 épisodes de la série marquèrent certainement plus que d’autres l’inconscient collectif québécois. Une sélection de trente-neuf épisodes (en couleur et en noir et blanc) est à présent proposée dans deux coffrets de cinq DVD chacun. Le premier offre quelques 75 minutes de scènes inédites regroupées sous le titre Les Péchés capitaux et le second 90 minutes, intitulées Humour, amour et rendez-vous. Une belle occasion de renouer avec ses souvenirs ou d’en apprendre un peu plus sur un des piliers de la psyché québécoise. -- Helen Faradji

Malheureusement, ce produit est de très mauvaises qualité. La gravure laisse à désirer. Plusieurs émissions sont inaccessibles et il y a beaucoup d'erreurs de lecture, que ce soit sur ordinateur ou lecteur DVD. Extrêmement décevant. Dommage pour cette superbe série culte.

I grew up watching this show with my family every week, then watching reruns throughout my life. When I watch it now, I imagine my parents sitting with me and watching it. (They are both deceased) Love all 5 in the collection. Thanks Amazon!

I have watched all of the TERRE HUMAINE series on my computer and everything worked fine, although some episodes have technical errors, it is understandable.
I have now started to watch (about 2 weeks ago), on my computer also, but when I got to disk 3 and 4, the disk would quit playing in the middle of some episode. I have then moved to our Blu-Ray (Panasonic) and they worked OK, until I got to disk 10 and 11 (they also crashed on my computer to), it would crashed in the middle of some episodes also. I have also an older Panasonic DVD player and all those disk worked fine in that one. So I have continued watching in that (Panasonic DVD) and I am now watching disk 16.
I also attempted to make a copy of disk 10 on my computer and burnt it on a dual layer 8.56G DVD blank, and one of the episode that was crashing on the Blu-Ray player worked fine, but it crashed on the following episode.
I realize that it is probably impossible for you to guarantee the disk to play in all DVD players or DVD-Rom. I haven't had any luck myself with dual layer disk for personal use.
I am open to suggestions on how to fix this problem
Yours truly

We love the collection and the layout. Unfortunately, there is one DVD that is faulty (#7), it freezes up and cannot be viewed properly. Is there any way to replace this one DVD??
