THE HORSEMAN ON THE ROOF / LE HUSSARD SUR LE TOIT BY JEAN-PAUL RAPPENEAU
1995 - France - 135 min

In French with English subtitles

As part of its Summer film series "Once Upon a Time: From Books to Movies", the Cultural Services of the French Embassy present the screening of the 1995 film The Horseman on the Roof by Jean-Paul Rappeneau.

Angelo, the handsome Italian officer with a face like an angel, runs along the alleyways and across the sun-beaten rooftops, gallops down the sunken trails of the fields. Towards what? For What? The story takes place in 1832 during a cholera epidemic that has laid waste to Provence, leaving a mass of corpses with blue, hideously grimacing faces in its wake. Yet Angelo finds time to lend to and massage the innocent victims with his last reserves of energy. He also finds time to love, calmly and serenely, the young Pauline de Théus, who is looking for a mysterious husband who may already be dead...
