Criticize Maripier without stoning her…

I hate to say “I told you so” but today I have no choice but to write “I told you so”.

Yes, the small artistic and media environment is unable to assess the role of Maripier Morin Arlett according to objective criteria and makes a moral judgement.


On June 13th in my column entitled Maripier Morin and the lion’s den, I wrote: “If the film, directed by Mariloup Wolfe from a screenplay by Marie Vien on 5 to … its on-screen performance. “Hahaha! Im The pressthe film critic split a film review that had nothing to do with cinema but everything to do with the demonization of Maripier Morin.

Half of his “criticism” is a pre-trial lawsuit against Mariloup Wolfe, who dared to hire such a controversial actress, and against the controversial actress who accepted the role. What a hideous little priest!

In my column on the lion’s den, I also wrote: “When Maripier Morin was the target of devastating accusations and reports, believe that the little friends in the community who signaled their virtue will put aside their ‘prejudices’ and ‘unconscious’ prejudice” and demonstrate “inclusion” and “fairness”? »

The columnist of The press seriously dared to ask: “Is it too early to rehabilitate Maripier Morin? »

But who judges, what are the deadlines that morality dictates?

Curiously, 24 hours later, the same media outlets presented us with a raving account of a community organizer “reaching gangsters,” young con artists and drug dealers from northeast Montreal who have served time in prison. .

“You need help, support. I know it’s hard to hear because they’re shooting at each other, but as a society we need to get closer to them instead of excluding them,” the community organizer explained.

An actress who has admitted to being addicted to alcohol and drugs and is in therapy is told, “Yeah, maybe it’s too soon to see you again.”

But criminals who have served prison sentences are coming forward.

Find the mistake.

Well, after all this, I’m sure you’re asking me what I think of the film?

If we see it as a grand fable, with archetypal characters, exaggerations, and caricature, we can appreciate it.

I often felt like I was looking at you story for everyone about the ugly world of politicians, with the evil finance minister and the nice culture minister.

Let’s say after watching shows like house of cards Where Borrowwho brilliantly explored the Machiavellianism of politics, Arlett does not have the same depth.


And Maripier Morin? It’s neither very good nor very bad. Right, nothing more.

The only time she touched me was in a scene where she said about politics, “I didn’t think it was going to be that hard”.

Sitting in my chair, I thought, Morin must have told himself during filming that this line also applies to the cultural milieu.
