Amazing Monsieur Fabre

A Feature film by Henri Diamant-Berger

Produced by CICC Films Borderie, UGC Images, Fides, Le Film d'Art (Henri Diamant-Berger)

Release in France : 14/09/1951

    Synopsis

    Pierre Fresnay plays the title role of a dedicated man, living in the south of France in the 19th-century and somewhat ahead of his time. Fabre ekes out a meager existence for his huge family as a mathematics instructor who studies insects. Recognition of his work, both in the field of entomology and as it related to man's behavior, came slowly over a 50-year period that showed him that man alone possesses a soul and free will.
