La Grande séduction

Seducing Doctor Lewis


Jean-François Pouliot


In the little harbour village of St-Marie-La Mauderne, the vanishing fish stocks have plummeted a once thriving community into decline, forcing the fishermen to rely on government welfare. When a small company considers building a factory on the island, the inhabitants see an opportunity for the village to be restored to greatness. But the factory cannot be built without a resident doctor. Seeking to attract the young Doctor Lewis (David Boutin), Germain (Raymond Bouchard) spearheads the transformation of the village. It’s the beginning of the seduction. From the women’s dress code to the food, even the patient’s illnesses, everything is done with the soul purpose of pleasing the doctor. While sometimes ruthless and often clumsy, even the most disillusioned villagers rally to the cause. The entire village works harmoniously and with great dedication towards trying to convince the doctor that St-Marie-La-Mauderne is the ideal place to live.
