Hiver 54, l'abbé Pierre 1989
Description: Postwar France was slow to recover from the after-effects of the Globe Fight Two. The economy was doing poorly, and many folks were terrible and homeless, sleeping under bridges, etc. The winter of 1953-54 proved particularly hard for these people, as it was one of the coldest on record. Father Pierre (Lambert Wilson), a parish priest, on seeing the suffering of these folks (and their frequent death from the cold), was moved to write the French government seeking support for them. When his letter, which was published in the newspapers, succeeded in rousing overwhelming famous help for supporting the homeless, he was able to form a charitable group (still active today) titled "Les Chiffoniers d'Emmaus," or "The Ragpickers of Emmaus" to channel support to them. This biographical movie says the real storyline of Abbe Pierre's successful efforts in those years.
Released: 01 Nov 1989 Director: Denis Amar Writers: Marie Devort (scenario and adaptation), Denis Amar (scenario and adaptation), Marie Devort (dialogue) Actors: Lambert Wilson, Claudia Cardinale, Robert Hirsch, Antoine Vitez Genres: Biography, Drama

Hiver 54, l'abbé Pierre Reviews:

This priest ,looked upon by the French folks as the contemporary Saint Vincent de Paul,for sure deserved better than this so-so movie which does not do the nice boy justice.Whereas Maurice Cloche had brilliantly succeeded in 1947 in transferring Saint Vincent de Paul's life ("Monsieur Vincent" )to the screen,Denis Amar did not rise to the occasion.And however,the actor he chose was excellent:Lambert Wilson,one of the greatest contemporary French thespians .They place the weight on him and he carried it.Thanks to him ,the movie is not boring.He confessed he would have played the part for free.Such is l'Abbé Pierre's popularity in France.


My sentiments about this movie closely parallel those of the previous reviewer. The selfless efforts of l'Abbe Pierre to save many Frenchmen from certain death during the brutal winter of 1954, create for quite an inspiring story. Unfortunately, in this instance, it was poorly told. Neither the generally perfect cast nor the hauntingly pretty cinematography totally overcome the distraction of a sometimes choppy script coupled with terrible editing.Even so there are more than enough nice "moments" and magnificent performances in this movie to create it well worth watching. With tiny previous help from the script, Lambert Wilson manages to bring the piety, dedication and charisma of l'Abbe Pierre to life, not just in words but with his entire being. He is particularly effective in the delivery of l'Abbe Pierre's radio speech. You don't need to know a word of French to be moved by this reading.Other performances, especially those in the roles of l'Abbe's corp of homeless entrepreneurs and the tin-eared politicos are also excellent. The consistent visual style of the film is nice considering that the virtual road life of l'Abbe and his cohorts continually stands in stark juxtaposition to the elegant, well-fed existence of those with the cash and power to resolve a life threatening situation.I would love to see this film re-cut and issued on DVD with extras that deliever audiences outside France with its historical context and an overview of the life and admiration accorded l'Abbe Pierre. Until then, scare up a SECAM video, even without subtitles, and play a pretty film about the type of folks our entire globe needs now!


French movie "Hiver 54,l'Abbé Pierre" directed by Denis Amar pays tribute to Henri Grouès. It works well as a poignant yet non maudlin representation of a globe where rich continue to create merry while their terrible brethren are left to die in roads due to cold weather. The notion of France as a 'nation of solidarity' is highlighted as folks from all walks of life contribute whatever they should to accumulate funds. Apart from l'Abbé Pierre, an influential girl called Hélène Larmier uses all her connections to accumulate more funds. The help by press, radio and tv compel French politicians to construct houses for homeless people. This movie is set in 1954, a year when France experienced one of its harshest winters. It was a tough time for everybody especially homeless folks who did not have enough resources to combat the ferocious cold. The death of a baby due to freezing cold is a large shock for L'Abbé Pierre. He calls on all French folks to support him in his war vs poverty. It can be told that those who possess knowledge about French culture gotta surely be aware of a catholic priest called L'Abbé Pierre for all the charitable work which he undertook for terrible folks in France. As Mother Teresa is known to all Indians, L'Abbé Pierre is known to all French people. He founded an international solidarity movement called Emmaus in 1949 to combat homelessness and poverty.
