On Wednesday, September 3, 2014, at 8:30 pm, Alliance Française de Manille Cine Club will be screening its featured French drama film for the month: Jappeloup.

Jappeloup is a 2013 French film directed by Christian Duguay. The films stars Guillaume Canet, Marina Hands, Daniel Auteuil, Tcheky Karyo, Lou de Laâge, Jacques Higelin, Marie Bunel and Joël Dupuch. In January 2014, Lou de Laâge was nominated for the Most Promising Actress award at the 39th César Awards.

In the early 1980s, Pierre Durand, Jr. gives up on his career as a lawyer and turns to professional show-jumping. He purchases Jappeloup de Luze (1975-1991) from Henry Delage. He loses at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, California, but wins at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea.


“Guillaume Canet... signe un film qui a du panache et vous emmène direct à Séoul. Ce film tient aussi par ses acteurs... et par un récit aussi épique qu’hippique. Surtout, “Jappeloup” est un film qui célèbre, sans en gommer les aspérités, la ténacité et le désir. Beau parcours, vraiment.”

Le Parisien

“Guillaume Canet wrote (based on the novel Crin Noir by Karine Devilder) and stars in this true story of one of France’s greatest equestrian exploits.”

The Hollywood Reporter
