Guèvremont's book better but...
18 May 2006 | by obelix_le_fafSee all my reviews

This movie was quite good but the book is better. The Outlander (Le Survenant) really deliver the merchandise with a marvelous acting. If anybody read the book, they'll agree that Jean-Nicolas Verreault did a marvelous job. The problem of the movie is the psychological approach and the fact that they made from the movie, a big Love Story between Angelina and Le Survenant. In the book, it's present but it's not all about that. In fact,this is a really important book in Quebec Litterature history because it break with the Traditional Clerk society. Survenant is the symbol of a changing Quebec society that is coming : The Quiet Revolution. When Guèvremont wrote this book, she had a «happy ending» where Survenant was revealing his story. The second version kept the magic: We don't know where's Survenant is from, neither what's his secrets. We only know that he's disturbing a Traditional society, and his passage trough this town is a announcement of the Changes that are above.
