Les Fous de Bassan

Les Fous de Bassan

A Feature film by Yves Simoneau

Produced by Les Films Ariane

Production year : 1987


    When handsome, magnetic and a bit of a rogue, young Steven Brown returns to his hometown on the Gaspé peninsula in Quebec in 1936 after wandering around the world a bit, his added glamor sets many a female heart pounding. However, this same town is noteworthy for its claustrophobic air of moralistic repression, and one result of his return is an outbreak of crimes of passion, including a couple of rapes.
