La vraie nature de Bernadette (The True Nature of Bernadette) (1972)

Bored Montreal housewife Bernadette (Lanctôt) decides to trade in her comfortable life in the city for a simpler existence in rural Quebec. With her son in tow, Bernadette moves into a rundown farmhouse where they attempt to make their living off the land. The newcomer’s arrival coincides with changes in her new community, and Bernadette can’t help but get involved in the politics of rural life.

Subversive and light-hearted, the film pokes fun at Bernadette’s romantic idealism with affectionate humanity.
