    Was it just me, or was this the worst movie made in recent times??

    It was awful in every respect, cast, costume, story, script and special effects.

    It was just a hideous attempt at making a credible movie and I feel sorry for the poor people from Canada and France who have to take full responsibility for this steaming pile of junk.

    I laughed out loud at the opening scenes when the rider was galloping along the fake-smoke filled lane, I chortled when the obvious film sets looked like… well… a film set, I chuckled at the terrible sounds of the fight scenes, I bellowed at the fake frost effects and the light cast upon the side of an actors face trick.

    Oh dear, oh dear.

    Gerard, you have allot to answer for.

    Good for the comedy value and I would encourage any film goers to watch this movie as a shining example of how not to produce a movie.

    Ho Ho Ho.

    It was well confusing though the story dont you all think ?, also considering i thought it was about the french indian wars etc, i at least expected a few firefights, that was a bit poor imo, a bit of action would have been nice, and even if they could not afford last of the mohican type fights, a few small scale skirmishes would have done

    This is soooo bad it’s unbelievable. Waste of a good cast, how did so many decent actors get involved in this piece of ****?

    i have been a massive Tim Roth fan for years, and tracked this movie down, knowing he was not in it much, but wanting to see it anyway as the story sounded quite good… i was mistaken … what a terrible film.

    across the board the brits did well, with Tim brill as always and Jason Isaacs doing a good turn as well… but where the hell did they find the actors playing the French-Canadians… they were just terrible. the sets looked like they had been built by a high school drama club, the score was horrible and repetitive, the story meandering and slow, the dialogue cringe-worthy.. seriously i find little redeeming features and wonder why such great British actors, and the ever wonderful Gérard Depardieu even agreed to be in it??

    When is the release date of this movie on DVD?

    Quelqu’un sait quand ce film sera mis en vente format DVD?

    I heard that it did not do to good on the box office and the reviews were not that nice.

    Dommage, je vais l’acheter de tout facon pour me faire ma propre opinion.

    Si les Quebecois voudraient faire un bon film d’epoque avec beaucoup de tragedie qui piquerait la curiosite du monde, ils devraient faire un film sur Etienne Brule le coureur des bois. :)

    Amicalement,

    Un Canadien francais en exil,

    It appears that, in early October, Celine Dion has recorded the theme song for the upcoming movie Nouvelle-France (New France)… The song entitled "Ma Nouvelle-France" was written by none other than Luc Plamondon, and Patrick Doyle composed the music, as well as the score for the whole movie…

    The movie will open in theaters on November 15…

    Lo que han hecho con esta película en España no tiene nombre.

    De 140 minutos a 92 minutos. Así es lógico que Tim Roth aparezca un global de menos de un minuto y que haya cortes temporales absolutamente salvajes.

    In Spain, cut version. 92 min. Horrible

    In my opinion this movie wasn’t horrible. the biggest problem I had was that I thought was a story about new france! The title Nouvelle-France and the opening where it says "blah blah blah, this is new france and this is our story, blah blah" gives the impression that the story will be based around new france. Instead it just takes place in new france with some historical references that seem to be mostly detrimental to the love story and not to Canada.

    The love story was ok, really sappy and somewhat unbearable sometimes, but not SO bad. But it shouldn’t have been mixed with a the story of new france, it suffocated it. The two stories were just too overpowering to be mixed together like that and make it work.

    Tim Roth and Jason Isaacs did an excellent job and that’s the main reason why I wanted to see the film. I love Gerard, but I thought his performance lacked. It was very sad at the end, but I was so unsatisfied with the way the story of new france was just sort of alongside it that I couldn’t commit to any of the characters in the way the story demanded.

    I’m a Canadian born in the prairies, currently living in Montreal. We have amazing stories to tell, this wasn’t one of them. Thumbs down.

    Mon bel amour, mon bel amant

    J’arrive au bout de tous nos tourments

    Ces quelques mots du fond de ma prison

    T’atteindront-ils un jour?

    Garde ton corps tout contre moi

    Serre-moi très fort pour la dernière fois

    Ton souffle chaud brûle encore sur ma peau

    Comme au premier jour

    Tu m’as donné l’amour

    Il sera ma lumière

    Je l’emporte en moi

    Et quand j’aurai trop froid

    Il me réchauffera sous la terre

    [Quand je ferme les yeux, je vous vois

    Et quand je les ouvre, je vous cherche]

    Et toi ma belle enfant

    Je n’aurai eu le temps

    Que de te montrer le mot amour

    Quand j’aurai survolé le vent

    Quand j’aurai traversé le néant

    Pour me retrouver devant le grand géant

    Je veillerai sur toi

    Je t’ai donné le jour

    Souviens-toi de ta mère

    Surtout n’oublie pas

    Que les violences de l’amour

    Sont égales aux violences de la guerre

    Adieu mon tendre amant

    Ma douce enfant

    Mes deux amours

    Adieu mon beau pays

    Ma Nouvelle France

    Ma Nouvelle France

    J’espère que tout est bon… j’ai copié les paroles directement du vidéoclip. Les paroles entre [] sont parlées par David La Haye.

    And for all of you english-speaking folks, here’s the translation, at the best of my capacities in this langage ;)

    My beautiful love, my beautiful lover

    I’m coming to the end of all our torments

    Will these few words from my prison

    Reach you someday?

    Keep your body close against mine

    Hold me tight for the last time

    Your hot breath is still burning on my skin

    Just like the very first day

    You gave me love

    It will be my light

    I keep it with me

    And when I will be cold

    It will keep me warm under the earth

    [When I close my eyes, I see you

    And when I open them, I’m looking for you]

    And you my beautiful child

    I only had the time

    To teach you the word "love"

    Once I’ll have flew over the wind

    Once I’ll have crossed the nothingness

    To find myself in front of the big giant

    I’ll look after you

    I gave you life

    Remember your mother

    Above all don’t forget

    That the violences of love

    Are equal to the violences of war

    Farewell my tender lover

    My sweet child

    My two loves

    Farewell my beautiful country

    My New France

    My New France

    Like I said, I’m not sure about how all my sentences turned out, but that’s the basic idea. I just want to say that I’m absolutely not a Céline Dion fan, in fact I disliked the song from Titanic, but I was quite impressed by this once. I mean for once there is not too much vocal flourish or notes only dogs can hear… Céline is actually stunning. It’s just a simple, sweet, sad melody, and she sings it amazingly well. And the lyrics are heart-breaking.

    Hi all, I am from Quebec Canada(New France lol) and I am actually very interested in seeing this movie even though I don’t usually see movies like this. It actually looks really good though. I only saw the preview once and that was at the theater (not on the big screen, but on little tvs before you go into the theater). I was just wondering if anyone knew where I could find the trailer again, or if anyone else here is interested in seeing this movie?
