Fanchon le criquet (Fanchon the Cricket) - Cine Concert
Michel Parmentier, piano - La Cinémathèque de Toulouse
Program Info: Fanchon le criquet (Fanchon the Cricket) James Kirkwood. 1915. USA.
A milestone in the filmography of Mary Pickford who, in this year 1915, gradually took control of her career. Writer Frances Marion, friend of the actress, adapts La Petite Fadette by George Sand and gives her a tailor-made role. That of a young savage who despairs of being accepted by the young people of a village. A sumptuous country setting, an almost witchy grandmother, but above all Pickford and her communicative energy which teaches boys a lesson and unashamedly competes against these women from another world. An invigorating lesson in emancipation!
