Marc Guermont used to be a very much sought after horse stuntman in films. One day unfortunately, he had a bad fall from his mount during the shooting of a historical movie. And not only has he become a paraplegic but his insurance company tries to rip him off into the bargain. Two good reasons for Marc to feel bitter and enraged. Needless to say that Marc resolutely waits for the coming of his insurance "advisor". But when the latter reports to him, the insurance man happens to be a... seductive woman, Florence Kernel.Written by
A very poignant story about a former stunt horseman who badly fell during his job and who stayed paralyzed from waist to feet. The lead character is played by the always tremendous Albert Dupontel, who also gives here a brilliant performance. He is here a desperate man who fights against all odds to pay his bills, get the insurance money and also not to fall in love with a beautiful insurance employee - Cecile de France. Yes, a beautiful story that deserves to be watched. I appreciated the ending, not in the American kind way. See what I mean?
A movie about horses too, a touching tale speaking of hope.
I don't know the film maker, what he gave us before.
