Ballad for a Dog

Ballad for a Dog

A Feature film by Gérard Vergez

Produced by Orpham Productions

Release in France : 19/11/1969

    Synopsis

    Remi (Charles Vanel) is a man on the verge of old age who begins to have hallucinations. He believes he has found a dog, but the canine is just a product of his imagination. The man takes a turn for the worse when his only friend, his poet neighbor, moves. He is left alone with his hallucinations and tries in vain to separate fantasy from reality in this plodding, depressing feature.
