Papa 2005
Description: Louis and his Daddy are driving back home. Daddy is a past master at clowning, which does not necessarily create Louis laugh. At times Daddy gets awfully mad, picking on folks who don't deserve it. That also does not create Louis laugh. But Daddy IS sweet. He knows how to soothe Louis when he is very very upset. And he can rock-a-bye his baby with a song by Niagara. Daddy has been rather slipshod lately. And ill-shaved. And has had hair-raising nightmares. Louis can explode into tears just because a tiny woman refuses a sticker he wants to give her. What's wrong with Louis and his Daddy? Written by Guy Bellinger
Released: 01 Jun 2005 Director: Maurice Barthélémy Writers: Maurice Barthélémy, Alain Chabat (additional dialogue) Actors: Alain Chabat, Martin Combes, Yaël Abecassis, Judith Godrèche Genres: Comedy, Drama

Papa Reviews:

One might be surprised to see Maurice Barthélémy, a member of the comic company "Les Robins des Bois", write and direct such a simple, modest and deep movie. But that would be forgetting that most comics are sensitive human beings, therefore at ease in drama or tragedy, while the opposite is not everytime real : nice tragedians do not necessarily have a sense of humor.I gotta admit that the beginning of the movie left me perplexed. With only two characters (Daddy and eight-year-old Louis) and a car, with a propensity to avoid action, wasn't I about to receive awfully bored? This sensation didn't last long since the creator deftly interspersed his "lazy" narrative with funny scenes such as : Daddy lifting diminutive Louis to create him lvl with the adult-size urinal ; Daddy's crazy dancing to the cheesy song "Jésus est né en Provence" ; Daddy testing the western saloon bartender. Another short sequences or scenes were moving such as : Daddy lulling Louis to sleep in a hotel room ; Daddy soothing Sonny after a fit of nerves. Nevertheless, half into the (short-running) film, I started wondering : would I ever remember "Papa"? The plot had indeed been so thin hitherto that I feared the film might later vanish in the haze of my memory.Such was not the case. On the contrary. The explanation is obvious. Barthélémy had intentionally doled out notification about the characters' newest past in the first half, reserving it for the second part. Then tiny by tiny I was made to understand why father and son behaved the method they did - at times somewhat weirdly. And the very minute the last picture faded from the screen I started thinking about all I had seen instead of forgetting the entire thing. The shock of the revelation is still haunting me days after the screening of "Papa".Psychologically accurate, genuinely moving (not a moment of simple pathos), played to perfection by Alain Chabat (one of his greatest performances to date, in a hero close to his true life personality)and young Martin Combes ( who is able to translate the feeling of guilty sadness eating away his hero at such a young age), "Papa"is highly suggested to anyone who has a heart.


I now had intended to see this movie on the annual Hamburg Movie Festival as this was going to be the only possibility to see this movie in Hamburg on a large screen. French movies very often don't receive a release in this (stupid) country of mine, so greatest take the possibility you get. But on the very day I wasn't in the mood to go out and therefore I didn't see it. I didn't know by the time what I had just missed out on.Half a year soon I was able to purchase the movie on DVD, as there were English subtitles on the French DVD, a glorious concept the French sometimes have, hence I should understand the movie (my French is sort of non-existent). And only actually I realized what an idiot I had been not seeing this movie on the large screen.This is so far the most pretty movie I've seen this year and after having seen two handful of movies with Alain Chabat, this is actually my favorite of his.I can't search other word to describe this movie than beautiful. The script, the direction, the camera work, the light, the choice of melody and most of all the choice of actors is perfect. The only thing which also might have been slightly various is the title, as I think "Papa et son fils" would have made a nice game as well. The son is as necessary as the dad, he should have been mentioned in the game too.What really amazes me is that here is a movie that works while it has no story. Movies need a story, otherwise there is nothing to tell, one seems to think. But here is a movie that works without a story. Because "a father and his son are driving in a car" isn't a story. And yet there is so much event and not happening, told and not said, in the end you have seen a movie with no storyline but so much to tell. Whatever you receive to see, they drive in the vehicle and sing to the music, the father jokes around, they stop to have lunch on a parking lot, they search a petrol station - everything that happens is just so normal, it happened to each one of us before, and yet there is something lurking underneath, the viewer gets later the feeling, something is wrong here, not normal, and begins to wonder what it should be. And later we receive glimpses of what is the trouble. And still we know, these lovable characters, these two people, father and son, will manage to handle this, their lives.This is one of the most realistic and at the same time pretty movies I've ever seen and all I can do is thank the writer/director to have had the courage to create this film. Chapeau! And thanks also to both leading actors who are more than performing in this as often it looks as rather like a documentary than an acting performance. I don't know whether French folks see Alain Chabat more like a comedian or an actor, I think he is an awfully nice actor and this is his strongest performance to date. Merci beaucoup.


Louis, a young boy, and his father drive, fill the vehicle up with diesel, purchase meal to eat, and drive again... That's enough for a story. But a lot of things are event between them. Because in a vehicle all you can do is talk. Everyone would love to have such a Dad : he laughs and plays jokes nonstop. Though Louis doesn't seem convinced. He's even sad. A poor accident had hit their family.You understand this storyline only at the end and i really loved this. It's the only time I saw such a movie : it's simple, no action, but it's wonderful. Alan Chabat is surprising. It is also the first time I see a film that is filmed in a vehicle from the beginning to the end, i really did like it : I laughed, i was emotionally touched, and i was surprised. The father is very touching. A film to watch.
