Product Description

Doctor Rainville, an old country doctor who has a deep attachment to his patients, is about to retire and is looking for a successor. Jeanne Dion, an emergency doctor from Montréal, agrees to come to Normétal to replace him for a few weeks, without considering staying any longer than necessary in the remote Quebéc village. Normétal is a town in decline whose only large employer, a mine, closed three decades ago. Life is hard there, and a doctor's relationship with his patients is much closer than Jeanne is used to after her experience in a large hospital's emergency ward. When the old doctor dies, Jeanne must decide whether to stay and accept a responsibility that comes with much more commitment than she had planned on.


Le docteur Rainville, un vieux médecin de campagne très attaché à ses patients, doit prendre sa retraite et cherche un remplaçant. Jeanne Dion, une urgentologue de Montréal, accepte de venir le remplacer à Normétal pendant quelques semaines, mais elle ne pense pas demeurer plus longtemps dans ce village éloigné du Québec. Normétal est un village sur le déclin, dont la seule entreprise majeure, une mine, a fermé il y a trente ans. La vie y est difficile et le rapport avec les patients, beaucoup plus intime que celui qu’a connu Jeanne à l’urgence d’un grand hôpital. À la mort du vieux médecin, Jeanne doit décider si elle reste ou non au village et si elle accepte une responsabilité qui l’engage bien au-delà de ce qu’elle entrevoyait.

Bernard Emond is a world class Quebecois film maker sadly little known in Canada outside of Quebec who is revered in Europe,justifiably so.
La Donation is part 3 of a trilogy based on the Christian virtues of faith,hope and charity made by a man who says he's a non believer.All three films are superb,with the first one La Neuvaine an outright masterpiece.
This film carries on from La Neuvaine with the same actress in the lead role and she is nothing short of brilliant.This film like all of Emond's explores the loss of values that are at the base of true community.These 3 films are the best Canadian films I've ever seen, by a long shot.

Très beau film débattant de la réalité des médecins qui doivent rester rationnel même dans les situations les plus difficiles et où une personne normalement constituée aurait tout simplement "flanché".
Ça change des film qui montrent l'étiquette pathétique du médecin riche et menant une belle vie avec des patients qui viennent "comme des moutoons chez un vétérinaire".

Merci pour ces moments de vérités.

P.S.: Je suis médecin et je me suis retrouvée dans plusieurs de ces scènes.

Don't quite know quite why I like this film so much. The actors are good (the old doctor is great), the story is good, the writing gets awkward at times, but I've watched it about 3 times now and still enjoy it. I suspect that part of the reason is some how this film seems so Canadian, from Quebec in this case but still, to me, so Canadian. I have added the other two films in Bernard Emond's trilogy (Contre Toute Esperance and La Neuvaine) to my wish list.
