The Man Who Laughs

France, Czech Republic
2012 / 95 min. / French version with English and Czech subtitles
Director: Jean-Pierre Améris
Cast: Gérard Depardieu, Emmanuelle Seigner, Marc-André Grondin, Jiří Maria Sieber

The young actor Gwynplaine has been disfigured with a horrid facial scar resembling a crooked smile since childhood. Like an outcast, he travels throughout the country together with Dea, a blind girl that he rescued when she was a young child, and with Ursus, the deceitful playwright and director of their travelling troupe. Eventually, Gwynplaine discovers he has aristocratic roots and has inherited a large fortune. His new-found status elevates him into elite social circles, but his old nomadic life still beckons to him. This film, loosely based on Victor Hugo's eponymous novel, features Gerard Depardieu in the lead role, and was co-produced by Barrandov Studios.
