LE GARÇON SAVOYARD: The Savoyard

A delicate and appealing story -- of a dreamer, a sensitive, inarticulate, peasant boy who falls in love with a circus dancer he sees just once -- and when unable to find her again, emotionally still ""follows her to the end of space, to the end of the night"". Deluded by the external beauty of a prostitute, in whom he hoped to recapture some trace of the circus girl, he strangles her for having misled him, and he is killed for the crime. ""C'est un drole de garÇon, le garÇon savoyard"".
