Plot Summary

In early twentieth-century Brittany, two peasants marry, have a son, and live in traditional Breton ways: three generations under one roof, a division of labor between the sexes, elders' stories at night, politics and religion during their little free time. Times are hard: la Chienne du Monde drives some to suicide; Ankou (death) is close at hand. Pierre is born into this republican family, his lyric childhood interrupted by the outbreak of war and his father's conscription. He learns his catechism and, as a child of a Reds, also reveres school. His grandfather and father often put him on their shoulders, giving him a ride on the horse of pride. Written by

Trivia Originally, Claude Chabrol was working on a film project on the peasants of the Creuse at the beginning of the twentieth century. After reading the best-seller "Le Cheval d'orgueil: Mémoires d'un Breton du pays bigouden" (The Horse of Pride: Life in a Breton Village) by Pierre-Jakez Helias, he decided to change the location and the history to that of the book which depicts rural Brittany at the beginning of the twentieth century, in the years preceding the First World War. The adaptation, entrusted to Daniel Boulanger, focuses on the autobiographical part and tells the story of Pierre. See more »
