"Too poor that I am to possess another animal, at least 'the horse of
pride' will always have a stall in my stable," said Breton peasant
Alain Le Goff to his grandson Pierre Jakez-Helias, who grew up to
write the best-selling novel, Horse of Pride. Director Claude Chabrol
was drawn to the story, a calendar of Breton ways and customs from
1905-1920 centering around one family's struggles to rise on the
social ladder. The film addresses the Breton's fascination with
fantasy through both the energies of the young boy, Pierre, who wishes
to carry the daydreams of his loved ones into reality, and the Celtic
tradition of storytelling with its emphasis on the sensational, the
dramatic, and the intensity of imagination. With Jacques Dufilho and
Bernadette Lesache. French with English subtitles.
