The old man and the boy

That's a real rare gem which I talk about, although it's a Michel Audiard's film starring Jean Gabin. Never released in VHS or DVD, never. I don't believe it. Maybe a copyright issue, unexplained and so complicated too. Anyway, it is available on You Tube for those among you who could be interested. It's a typical French and especially Audiard story here. The tale of a man - Jacques Marin, a word that in french means sailor !!! - who dreams to sail over the seven seas aboard a ship, and not a cruiser, nor a cargo. And because he knows nothing about this, he asks his uncle, played by Gabin, to help him achieving his dream. And in this story you also have a young kid who dreams of adventure and long journeys aboard ships. And the kid meets Gabin who impersonates an old adventurer, a very experienced sailor. Whom he is absolutely not. This kid who makes the old man his god, the old man who is nothing at all, who has never been what he pretends to be for the kid. And those sequences between the young kid with his dreams and the old man lost in his unachieved ones, are so poignant, moving. A film that makes you feel great emotions. Gabin is here at his peak. No one else but him could have played this character. No one. Such a shame this had never been released in DVD. Only aired, thirty years ago.
