I saw a French film when I was child — it was black and white, made during “The 400 Blows” or “The Fire Within” eras, I think. I can’t remember the plot, but I think it was about a former bullfighter who has come back to his native town to rebuild his relationship with his wife (?) and/or little daughter. I distinctly remember a scene in a shop where he was asked by the shopkeeper why he came back, and he replied “To buy.” Does anyone know what that film is?
sorry divinem, no idea from me! i tried googling random words but all it came up with was that awful greg kinnear film!
Thanks, Adam. :) [I’d like to apply Peter Griffin’s quote about Ben Stiller to Greg Kinnear: “His movies are terrible.”]
Anyhoo, I’m desperate to see that film again. It kinda looked like “The Fire Within.”
Hmm, not sure.
the one productive thing i will say is that youre probably in the best place possible to actually find out what it is! i have a feeling your intitial post may have got lost in the rush of new threads that came with this sites huge jump in popularity last week. i know that i missed it when you posted it originally, so heres hoping more people come across it now!
De sable et de sang (Blood and Sand) ?
I’m pretty good with French cinema, but I can’t recall any concerning a bullfighter. Are you sure it’s French?
Christopher Sepesy: I’m not really sure if he was a bullfighter. There’s one scene, I think, in a shop where he toyed around with a sword and mimicked a matador. Yes, I’m quite sure it’s French.
