Product Description

Henri attends to the upkeep of the lights and lamps in the convent where he has been living since early childhood. Orphaned and forgotten by all, Henri is timid and withdrawn. One day, he is forced to leave the protective walls of the institution and is suddenly sent out into a world that is foreign to him. Led by his naivety, he tries to bring light into the lives of people who are, like him, alone. He especially tries to revive the fire in Helene's heart, the beautiful box office clerk, who lives in an obscure world and who Henri is secretly in love with. / Orphelin oublié de tous, timide et effacé, Henri entretient les lampes et luminaires du couvent où il vit depuis sa plus tendre enfance. Forcé un jour de quitter les murs protecteurs de l'institution, le jeune homme est soudain projeté dans un univers qui lui est étranger. Porté par une innocence candide, il va tenter de tirer de la noirceur les gens qui, comme lui, sont isolés. Il va surtout chercher à rallumer la flamme dans le coeur d'Hélène, la belle guichetière, celle qui vit dans un monde noir et sans lumière dont il est secrètement amoureux.

Format: DVD
One of the most beautiful heart-warming films I have ever seen. The story of a orphaned boy named Henri Henri who grows up to be a man who follows the signs around him that lead him to personal happiness and success. Henri Henri is a story about believing in who you are and having faith in yourself and others and through having faith your dreams can come true. All the characters in this film are wonderful and the cinematography is excellent. If you loved Forrest Gump or Amelie, you will love this film.

This is a sweet and innocent film, but yet ultimately one about homespun wisdom, in which characters who are pure of heart, either because they have been that way all along or because, having come to have contact with Henri Henri (whom we discover later to have the real name of Henri Marcotte, in the gentle recognition scene with the father who had abandoned him and his mother when Henri was a child), come to attain to such purity through interaction with him. This motion picture definitely is not for hard-hearted cynics or for those who unrelentingly seek thrill or titillation in watching cinema. If the moviegoer has enjoyed "Le Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain", "Babine" (maybe, for some, even "Forrest Gump"), and other films about simple folk who connect with others at a deep level through their innocent openness, that viewer also is likely to enjoy "Henri Henri".

One of the two most striking friendships that Henri makes is with a blind girl, Hélène Guérin, with whom Henri falls instantly in love when he sees her at the ticket counter at the entrance to (of all places!) a porn movie theatre (of the kind once common in large cities before home video erotica undermined that market) where Hélène works selling tickets and cleaning the theatre after hours, managing to do such work despite her handicap. The milieu does not corrupt this sweetly attractive girl because her blindness protects her from the moral contagion that it markets. Another character whom Henri comes to befriend is a reclusive old man who had inherited a fortune in the market for pickles, an enterprise that he headed upon his father's death until the competition with foreign food imports into Québec led to the company's demise.

It is a crime against humanity - in kind of a literal way - that this is not perceived to be a classic film, because it should be.

Then again, maybe it's just too good - in a clearly literal way - for something as tawdry as that.
