| spectacular footage mixes with a story you won't care about
Film about Charles Bedaux who came to the US from France and changed the way factories produced their products. In the process he became one of the wealthiest men in the world only to see it all begin to slip away as he fought to maintain ties with the axis powers during the Second World War and as the workers of the world fought against his methods. The film intercuts footage from an expedition he took across the Canadian Rockies with his life story, the result is a mish mash of a tale who's purpose I'm still trying to sort out. Blame it on the director. there is the nuggets of a good story in this mess but I can't find it. I know little more about Bedaux after the film then when I went in. His was the only side and so long as his family friends and business were safe he didn't care what he he did. Unfortunately the American government did, especially during war time. Its on odd film about an odd man and its interesting up to a point, but somewhere about half way in I realized I had no idea why I was watching this or why I should care. I made it to the end, but can't really say it was worth the slog- even if the footage from the Rockies trip is often spectacular. I'd take a pass
