Storyline

François' mother, Mme Lepic, hates him and she nicknames him "Poil de Carotte" (Carrot hair). His father is more interested in politics and hunting that he is in him. In spite of the affection of his godfather and his friend Mathilde, whom he calls his "fiancée", young Poil de Carotte contemplates suicide. On a particularly difficult day, he attempts to hang himself. Mr. Lepic saves his life just in time and understands he is partly to blame for this. From this day on, they both unite against Mme Lepic's bad temper. Written by Greg Philip {greg_philip@hotmail.com}

Trivia

According to Mon Ciné of January 7, 1926, Mrs. Silvayre (possibly actress Renée Sylvaire or Nora Sylvère ) was scheduled to play Madame Lepic but fell ill and had to leave the film after five days. Even though her husband Henry Krauss thought she was the wrong type, Charlotte Barbier-Krauss was chosen by Julien Duvivier to replace Mrs. Silvayre. See more »

...well known . impressive. for the passion of Duvivier for the novel of Jules Renard. for the impressive technique for period. for Andre Heuze in the lead role, perfet image of Francois Lepic. for impressive Charlotte Barbier giving a pure Dickens -like character. and admirable for coherence of script, not ignoring the difficulties to adapt the book. a film like a trip in past. like a remember about the first steps of cinema and about its meaning, about the hard work of the pionners and about the ignored names of actors and directors. short, a film like a real usefull experience.
