An old family man
22 April 2011 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I had not known this film before, I ran into a photo of a helicopter which was a capture from it and I became curious. I am very happy I have seen this movie, it is one of the best I could see these last months. It is that kind of story of a very strong character, a man who feels responsible for his family and does whatever he can to keep the honor intact. Even though, at first, he thinks he can do it all by himself, he soon discovers that if one wants to help one's family, one needs the family's help. The main character, that of Jean Gabin, is the image of the old French farmer and landowner, who is subjected to his land and rules his home like a dictator. No one dares to talk back to him, or, if any does, the old man knows how to shut his mouth. And when a danger appears that threatens the family, he does not hesitate for a second to react radically. When the danger becomes even greater, Maurice uses the help of his sons-in-law, and I think this is the moment they finally become family. The last one who proves to be a member of the family will be Henri; found in his cellar by the police, he finds the exact words and action that discharge him and his grandpa in the eyes of the law, and in the last scene of the film, he accepts his status of a farmer, by accompanying his old men to work. All in all, I liked this film very much and I will recommend it to my friends.
