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
Horses, Stunts, Wheelchairs and Insurance Adjustors in this French Drama
Albert Dupontel of 'A Very Long Engagement' plays Marc Guermont. He is a horse trainer and a stunt man. On one shoot he gets injured and ends up being a paraplegic. We join him as he returns from hospital and tries to put his life back together.
Then his insurance representative turns up this is Florence Kernel - Cécile De France – 'Mesrine' – and tries to get him to settle the claim. He has different ideas and soon they are having to see more of each other ostensibly to settle the case.
Now to say anymore would be a plot spoiler. This is essentially the story of them both, but the backdrop of the injury and redemption is quite good if a bit 'seen it before' in terms of the plot and structure. This then is a 'nice' film, it will not make your top five movies of all time, but it is a good way to while away 87 minutes. In French with good sub titles and some nice horsey shots – one for fans of our Gallic neighbours.
