The 19th Tokyo International Film Festival
gThe Rocketh by Charles Binamé in the Competition Category

Saturday, October 21 through Sunday, October 29
@@Roppongi Hills, Shibuya Bunkamura etc.

Hockey star Maurice Richard, nicknamed gThe Rocket,h was an idol to young boys and a national hero to Canadians. His straightforward and intense passion for hockey and the unshakeable will that marked his long career starting in the 1940s earned him a place in history. Even after retirement in 1960, Richard remained an icon to the young generation and an avid supporter of the sport till his death in 2000. Although much of the film consists of up-close live hockey action, it is also a human drama portraying the difficulties and social tensions Richard lived through during the war years and early postwar period. Roy Dupuis is brilliant as Maurice Richard, and Charles Biname's careful production combined with beautifully clear photography makes for an impressive feast for the eyes. Use of real NHL players for the hockey scenes adds to the impact. 2005, 125 minutes, in French/English with Japanese subtitles.
