Campé dans une région rurale et isolée des Laurentides, le film '' Les bons débarras'' dépeint l'amour quasi excessif d'une enfant pour sa mère. Pour cette raison, elle en vient à terroriser tout homme pouvant venir bouleverser cette relation. Basé sur le scénario du grand romancier Réjean Ducharme et filmé par Michel Brault, ce conte gothique de Mankiewicz occupe une place privilégiée dans l'histoire du cinéma canadien. Souvent salué comme l'une des plus grandes réalisations cinématographiques du Canada, ce film mêlant passion, amour filial et jalousie, a remporté huit prix Génie, incluant celui du meilleur film.

But the product description did not appear to include the presence of English subtitles. However, I was still willing to do without them in order to obtain at least the overall picture quality that a DVD of such a film whose basic appeal is universal would provide.
It turns out that English subtitles are indeed present, and in comparing them over a few viewings with the French being spoken, they are intelligently written to capture an English nuance instead of just slavishly following the original Quebecois.
(As a side note, unfortunately my copy of the disk produces some inexplicable ear-piercing noise artefacts when first starting up, so you may wish to lower the volume in case yours turns out to have a similar problem. Also, there are no English liner notes)
I enjoyed this film even when I didn't quite catch everything that was being said, but now the full impact of the story and performances can shine through. Not that this film will be to everyone's taste since it takes place among so-called ordinary people who are just trying to survive in rural Quebec and there are no easy Hollywood endings.
But the theme is a basic human one that, although difficult, can potentially move many viewers very deeply. In my view, the film depicts the endless grief that exists in trying to go on living without the basic foundation of having been truly loved.Read more ›
Unfortunately, the canadian distributor (Filmoption International) ruined this rare opportunity by refusing to pay its share for that amazing restoration. Filmoption decided to release the film as it was prior to the restoration. It's just horrible, sad, barely watchable and not worth the money you pay for it. Let's pray for the restored version, one day.
