A boy comes across a white-haired wild horse in the Camargue. Ranchers seek to capture the horse, but it escapes. What will happen as the boy sets out to find the horse again? The film is set in the gorgeous landscape of the Camargue, a marsh area in the south of France where the river Rhone meets the Mediterranean Sea.
This comment will be a little personal: I was 6 or 7 years old when I went for the first time to a cinema and Crin Blanc was was then the first film I saw on a large cinema screen (at home we got our first television set at the beginning of the sixties). As far as I can remember it was a nice story of a boy and a wild horse in the Camargue.The director was Albert Lamorisse and another important name: Edmond Sxc3xa9chan, the director of photography of this film. Very beautiful images of horses and the landscapes of the Camargue.
