| Not much here, except for the score
The score is wonderfully out of place here and it is the only thing that didn't sink deep into oblivion. So you can skip the movie and find the score by Serge Gainsbourg (and Jean-Claude Vannier), even experience the contrast with images by watching the 3min opening credits on YouTube.

At 76min (i.e. 73min without the credits sequence) the movie has the appropriate rhythm, which is rather slow, in accordance with life at the farm. The story is really simple, and actually everything and everybody is quite simple in La Horse. Even simplistic. In the end you feel that the story doesn't amount to much and that it sides with the rural family law that is very close to Mafia ethics or to the vigilante movies that will flourish during the 70s. Frankly this is not the kind of conclusion that I find satisfying; at least they could have closed the movie on the daughter's face.
