a hero
a biopic about the life and the struggles of Georges Guingouin. at the first sigh, not real different by many others French biographic movies. with the significant detail to become, scene nu scene, be more than the case of a local leader of Maquis, more than the evolution of the political activity of a Communist personality. maybe, for me, as Romanian history teacher, this film has a special status. not only for the good performances, for the reflection of the spirit of the time, for the gall from ideal to the cruel reality, but for a realistic portrait of honesty and need to not ignore the moral rules. admirable portrait of a hero, "The Great George" is one of films giving a realistic perspective about past.
