Film Fest Gent - The Mustang

In the presence of: Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre, Matthias Schoenaerts

'The Mustang' is a tale of a man and his horse. Matthias Schoenaerts plays a troubled convict, Roman Coleman, who is detained at the Northern Nevada Correctional Center. He is prone to violence and resists every effort to be reintegrated into society. To diffuse his erratic temper, the convict is placed in a rehabilitation program. Here, each prisoner gets challenged to train a wild Mustang in five weeks' time. Soon, man and horse recognize themselves in one another, paving the way for a tender drama about guilt and the process of healing. Director Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre took inspiration from an existing programme in the US, in which detainees train wild horses for auctions. The theme and cinematography of the film, as well as Schoenaerts' performance received praise at its premiere in the US. As Variety's Owen Gleibermann wrote: "'The Mustang' is a touching and original piece of bare-bones sentimental humanism, and Schoenaerts is terrific in it."
