Synopsis


De Paris à Tokyo de New-York à Beyrouth en passant par Valparaiso et Port aux Princes, cela fait presque quarante ans que Jean-François Pauvros trimbale sa silhouette dégingandée de guitariste sonic, et surtout, un engagement et une croyance quasi mystique en la musique. “Don Pauvros de la Manche” raconte la gestation d’un disque imaginaire. Le guitariste partage son temps entre Paris et le bord de la côte d’Opale, près de Boulogne sur mer, dans son fief, où il multiplie les expériences à l’humour décalé.

Tënk's opinion


Filmmaker Guy Girard has a rare ability to abolish the distance that separates him from those he films so as to better understand the art being created before his eyes. Life and music intertwine and allow a genuinely poetic field to unfold. Don Pauvros de la Mancha is the ethnography of a conqueror; one of those for whom Free Music is not just a break from the past that took place in the late 50s but remains a constantly updated origin. Guy Girard and Jean-François Pauvros are the two great artists of this film.
