A touching version of Jules Renard's famous novel about an unloved, redheaded farm boy from the director of Pépé le Moko and HippFest 2019 hit Au Bonheur des Dames.

François is a nine-year-old boy with red hair and freckles. His mother is a harridan of Dickensian dimensions who favours her eldest son and persecutes the neglected François, deriding him with the name ‘carrot top’. Un-noticed by his father, the boy sinks deeper and deeper into despair, with the kindly maid his only ally. This sophisticatedly filmed and occasionally dark film is an emotionally satisfying, child’s eye view of an unhappy family.

Dir. Julien Duvivier | France | 1925 | N/C
