En Équilibre :- Watch En Équilibre on Youtube on Fire, This drama stars Albert Dupontel as a horse trainer and stunt rider who is paralysed from the waist down after an accident on a film set. Cecile De France plays a tightly chignoned insurance assessor, who years ago had aspirations to become a concert pianist, who’s trying to persuade him to accept a low-ball settlement. However, his manly mastery and hirsute dignity touches her heart and they fall in love, or at least have an affair, and she starts to rethink her life choices. A very poignant story about a former stunt horseman who badly fell during his job and who stayed paralyzed from waist to feet. The lead character is played by the always tremendous Albert Dupontel, who also gives here a brilliant performance. He is here a desperate man who fights against all odds to pay his bills, get the insurance money and also not to fall in love with a beautiful insurance employee Cecile de France. Yes, a beautiful story that deserves to be watched. I appreciated the ending, not in the American kind way. See what I mean? As the above might suggest, this is about as bourgeois and Gallic as a film can be without actually dressing the characters in Breton shirts and draping ropes of onions around their necks, but the actors are undeniably magnetic, the stunt work is duly impressive, and it all trots along at manageable pace. Plus, there’s some great equine acting on hand from Othello, the supporting stallion.
