Les Galettes de Pont-Aven : Joël Séria directs a cult film about an ordinary man who wants his art to be taken seriously !!!!
8 July 2015 | by (Paris,France) – See all my reviews

In many ways, 'Les Galettes de Pont-Aven' remains faithful to 1970s, the time of its making when people did not have to worry much to lead a carefree life. Those viewers who are familiar with arts and the world of painters would not take much time to associate famous French painter Paul Gauguin with Pont-Aven. He shares a lot of similarities with Henri Serin, an ordinary man's character played brilliantly by French actor Jean-Pierre Marielle who also started to paint somewhat late in his life. By directing 'Cookies', Joël Séria has put himself in the same league as Jean Renoir who was able to direct films about ordinary men who emerged as heroes. The entire film is based on the notion of respect bordering on appreciation and recognition which an ordinary man is seeking. He finds it after being part of different adventurous experiences. In the history of French cinema, 'Les Galettes de Pont-Aven' has achieved the status of a cult film. It was made in 1975 but continues to remain very relevant even in the modern times. It is recommended for those viewers who would like to explore some hidden gems of French cinema.
