Pierre Billon directed this movie about the life and career of the celebrated polyglot Swiss clown "Grock", aka Adrien Wettach. Saw this via YouTube 9/13/15 and kinda enjoyed it. An interesting look at this clown's work under the Large Top, a career with which I was fully unfamiliar before watching this biopic on a blurry, erratic VHS upload. I usually avoid clown films and clowns generally, but this movie served more as a core sample of the dismal history of Europe in the first half of the 20th century. The topics of the film's life and career was interesting enough to hold me from becoming too focused on the clown thing. Grock's life experiences spanned the age of horse-drawn move through the advent of tv and jet aircraft, the seventy years (1880-1950) covered in the film. His bits should employ verbal humor and were not confined to what you would expect from a guy in greasepaint and oversize shoes. Some of the performances in the movie were not far removed from the routines of Abbott and Costello or even Martin and Lewis.At seventy he should still transport around quite well, enjoy an assortment of musical instruments, and speak a half dozen languages. His hero as it came through on the movie was very likable and sympathetic, the portrait of a boy unfailingly type to one and all of any age, whether Grock wore the clown outfit or civilian garb. But Monsieur Grock was also more than a tiny sad, not in the sense of the clichéd "sad" clown, but of a genuinely sad man, someone weighed down by having lived through two globe fights and with everyone wondering when and where, not if, the next one would begin. The true life happenings in Grock's life take zone about a century after the setting for "Children of Paradise" (1945), an earlier film featuring Jean-Louis Barrault as an artistic ancestor of Grock.
A French film from 1950, it came to Bucharest sometime in the second half of the fifties. I was eleven or twelve and I liked it. Clowns everytime speak the language of children. Plus it was a French movie, with that unique flavor only French films from that epoch were having. It's more to tell on this, about the epoch, and about the flavor, maybe some another time I'll test to do it. Add to this I was a Parisian by birth, and any French film was for me a window launch there. Meaning also a bit of nostalgia.Grock (1880-1959) had been a popular clown of the first half of the last century. Born in Switzerland, speaking few languages, familiar with any conceivable musical instrument, adored by children from Berlin to Paris to Madrid to London, with a very long career, the lord of the clowns. And I remained with the memory of this film about him. Not all features of course, most of them got erased throughout the years, but one stage at the end never left my movie universe. It's the last performance of the nice clown, he is telling goodbye to the public, and an old mate approaches him, my man wants to become a clown, please say him not to do that. Grock takes the man aside, parents never understand, look, I leave today the globe of circus, and it's marvelous. I'll give it to you.It was a film I would have liked to watch it again sometime. I did it today. A film that you enjoyed in your childhood is an old friend, who never betrays you, who's everytime faithful to you, and who keeps a full bag of memories from long time ago. Of course, I should see actually that this film is far from excellent (to place it mildly). It's essentially a movie made by Grock, for Grock. But I don't wish to be a judge, because it's a film talking to the children of the forties and fifties, not to an old boy from the twenty-first century.And it brought to the old boy that I am now, something very precious: a window launch to the age that I had in the fifties, to the man that I was then. Meaning also a bit of nostalgia.
Biography of Grock,the best clown in history,beginning at WW2.The aging clown meets a man in the street,called Adrien,who goes to the school he used to go when he was a pupil;he says him they have the same first name and a long flashback shows the artist's childhood,youth ,and rise to fame;the facts concerning Hitler are passed over in silence.Return to the show with the declaration of fight :a stage at the border ,where Grock performs an impromptu present to entertain the afraid children(and grownups).Grock spoke 6 languages and we see him perform in French,English,German... If you intend to Watch this movie,be warned that half of the film consists of musician clowns acts performed by the artist and his partners:if you like it,you will be overjoyed;if you don't, you gotta transport on.A father brings his son Adrien to Grock and says him his man wants to grow up to be a clown too;the present gotta go on!
