Claude Lelouch directed this 1988 French drama starring Jean-Paul Belmondo. A foundling, raised in the circus, Sam Lion becomes a businessman after a trapeze accident. However, when he reaches fifty and becomes tired of his responsibilities and of his son Jean-Philippe, he decides to disappear at sea. However, when he runs into Albert Duvivier, one of his former employees he comes to realise that he has ignored the most important things in his life.

Format: DVD
Claude Lelouch may be one of the most inconsistent directors around, but 1988's Itinerary of a Spoiled Child plays to his strengths and offers a fine Cesar-winning role and his last box-office hit for Jean-Paul Belmondo as the orphan turned injured circus performer who turned mucking out the stables into a multi-million sanitation business that dominates his life until he decides on a whim to fake his death during a solo trans-Atlantic voyage. He's happy enough keeping to himself and walking with lions in Africa until a couple of years later he's recognised by former employee Richard Anconina and learns that his children have made something of a hash of the empire he left them. Rather than resurrect himself, he decides to return to France and use Anconina as his proxy to sort things out...

Along with a strong visual sense that makes the most of his locations, Lelouch uses a fluid timeline, drifting back and forth for much of the first quarter, but unlike his more self-indulgent ensemble pieces here there's always a clear sense of where the film is going and why we should care about these people. On one level it's a curious mix of drama, light comedy, mild romance and feelgood whimsy that has a bit of everything without ever going all out in any one direction, yet somehow it all works rather perfectly. The hesitant Anconina's an amiable foil but it's Belmondo's performance that really anchors the film with a perfect mixture of star quality and underplayed heartfelt acting as a man who has everything but, though he'll never admit it, knows he's somehow not got anything really right along the way and, having broken all his toys, tries to walk away.

Lelouch at his best 17 Dec. 2012
By Patrick Perdu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Claude Lelouch gets back together with Jean-Paul Belmondo decades after Pierrot le Fou for what is to me the best of Lelouch and one of the best of Belmondo.
Full disclosure: I was shopping Amazon for this movie after watching it again, to order it for a good American friend of mine and I am a little sad not to be able to find it with English subtitles. What a waste, as the US public deserves to be treated with this great, great movie.
A great values story 14 Jan. 2014

One can escape and be their own. But one can't abandon what is of value for them. The guy needed to get away to feel his values from afar.
