Storyline

Near the Baie de la Seine swamps, opposite the Port of Le Havre, Auguste Maroilleur, an elderly farmer, exploits 400 hectares of crop land with the help of his family, over which he rules with an iron hand. Things go awry the day he discovers one of his grandsons is involved in drug traffic. To make matters worse, the reckless youth has hidden the white powder in the Maroilleur farm. Without a moment's hesitation, Auguste gets rid of the toxic substance but, of course, the mob has different views... Written by Guy Bellinger

LA HORSE (DIDIER BECU)
18 October 2003 | by (Gent, Belgium) – See all my reviews

"La horse" is the kind of movie no one mentions but it is definitely one you must have seen as it's superb! We are put in some French village at where everybody knows everyone and at where we find a farmer's family that's been led by the dictatorial Jean Gabin who only believes in one word "work". The man's dream got totally splattered when one of his sons is involved in drug traffic and brings the white powder to the farm. Gabin thinks that throwing it away solves all problems but of course the mob wants their stuff back... What then follows is a superb exciting piece of a movie in where the contrasts between the old French and the new ones are explored in great 70's cinematographic arts. Superb movies that is over before you realize it. Also musical score by the godlike Serge Gainsbourg!
