Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Jean Pierre Lefebrvre directed this Canadian drama, the final film in a trilogy that began in 1967 with Don't Let It Kill You and continued in 1977 with The Old Country Where Rimbaud Died. All three feature Abel Gagne (Marcel Sabourin), a 55-year-old pilot who stopped flying after a friend died in a crash 15 years earlier. Abel and his friend Antoine (Jean-Pierre Ronfard) operate a small Quebec airfield. Acquiring a vintage Tiger Moth biplane, Abel plans to fly once again, but problems arise: a bank will seize his assets if a debt goes unpaid, and his father Napoleon (Claude Blanchard), who deserted the family decades earlier, suddenly turns up, creating friction. Filmed in farmlands south of Montreal.
