Bartabas

Mazeppa

111' - 1993 - Drama - Dialogue: French
Director: Bartabas Composer: Jean-Pierre Drouet With: Bartabas, Miguel Bosé, Brigitte Marty, Eva Schakmundes, Bakary Sangare
Based on several facts in the life of Théodore Géricault, and especially his fiery passion for horses, Bartabas weaves an intrigue around the meeting of Franconi, horse-trainer and director of the Olympic Circus. When Géricault painted his project for Mazeppa, it was the first time that a French painter had interpreted what was to become one of the favorite themes of Romanticism. Mazeppa incarnates man carried away by his passion, or the artist drawn by his genius towards the unknown.
