Gribiche
(1926)

Country: France

Genre: Drama

IMDb

Synopsis

A sincere working-class 13-year old in France is adopted by a well-meaning philanthropic millionairess from America who promises his doting mother that the boy will have the finest education; but things turn out to be not so simple.

Notes

  • Based on the 1925 novella of the same name by Frédéric Boutet (1874-1941), director Jacques Feyder conceived "Gribiche" as a vehicle for Jean Forest, the Montmartre boy he had discovered and cast in "Crainquebille" in 1922 and again in "Visages d’enfants" - the three films thus forming a trilogy illuminated by one of the silent screen’s most moving boy actors.

This is probably Jean Forest's best performance. Although this is hard since he is so good in all his films. A very simple film--the boy returns a purse to this rich lady and instead of rewarding him she wants to adopt him to make him, in her words, a more proper gentleman when he grows up. But as you will see, this plan of hers didn't work out as well as she likes. She just picked the wrong boy.
