Despite its very simple plot (the story of a son taking over the daily
round of his sick grocer father), 'Le fils de l'épicier' qualifies as
an enriching film experience.
Helmer Eric Guirado never relies on twist plots, car chases or visual
and yet the viewer is captivated and leaves the theater
fulfilled and happy. This is no small feat, so how does the
co-writer/director Guirado accomplish this object? It's easy for me to
analyze how he went about it (although I guess it must have been very
difficult for him to make such a thin story interesting).
What actually makes this film particularly effective is its fine blend
of documentary and fiction. A real ethnographer, the director captures
real life to perfection. The grocer's son's customers are real people,
what they say is what everyday fellows do in everyday life. Moreover
most of the people playing villagers and customers are not professional
actors but true people re-enacting what they do day after day. Simple,
old chaps, rarely honored by the big screen. All rings true in 'Le Fils
de l'Epicier' and this all the less surprising as Eric Guirado followed
three different grocers in their daily rounds for months and months
before filming. He DOES know his subject and you get an impression of
However, supposing 'Le fils de l'épicier' had been a hardcore
documentary, it might not be as exciting as it is. For what little
fiction is added to the documentary aspect lives up to it and finally
makes the story and the characters catch on even better.
For instance Guirado examines with impressive relevance the tense
relationships in the family. He also explores convincingly the serious
theme of finding one's place in life and in society. Just like the
customers mentioned before, the characters are true to life and Eric
Guirado, never condemning any of his characters, tries to make us
understand all of them, including the most unpleasant ones. A
humanistic approach Jean Renoir would have approved of. Add to this a
knack for comedy. Whenever it is possible Guirado eases the tension
thanks to well-timed and staged funny sequences, like the painting of
the van, the crazy appearances of Lucienne, etc.) There are good
professional actors too ( handsome brooding Nicolas Cazalé;
refreshingly unaffected Clotilde Hesme; Jeanne Goupil, Joel Seria's
former sexy muse turned
plump-fifty-year-old-mother-with-a-heart-of-gold ; always unsettling
Daniel Duval as the unforgiving father).
To put it in a nutshell, in 'Le Fils de l'Epicier' the documentary side
enhances the fiction and vice versa. Go and see it. You won't be
