MAZEPPA

In Competition - 1er film
Directed by :
BARTABAS 
Country:
FRANCE
Duration:
111.00 minutes

Synopsis

Based on several facts in the life of Théodore Géricault, and especially his fiery passion for horses, Bartabas weaves an intrigue around the meeting of Franconi, horse trainer and director of the Olympic Circus. When Géricault painted his project for Mazeppa, it was the first time that a French painter had interpreted what was to become one of the favourite themes of Romanticism. Mazeppa incarnates man carried away by his passion, or the artist drawn by his genius towards the unknown.
