Lucky Luke - La fabrique du western européen

Lucky Luke — La fabrique du western européen

France | 2016 | 53 min
From October 14, 2017, to January 21, 2018, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts will be presenting the exhibition Once Upon a Time … The Western: A New Frontier in Art and Film. In America and abroad, the myth of the exotic Wild West captured the imagination of an entire generation. Belgian cartoonist Maurice de Bévère, known as Morris, fantasized about the gunslingers who roamed the American Great Plains and invented the character of Lucky Luke. From his early sketches to the now world-famous version of his cowboy, developed with scripts by Goscinny, the film looks at Morris’s career and his various influences. In this madcap portrait of Lucky Luke who, although now 70 years old, is still just as quick on the draw, French filmmaker Guillaume Podrovnik presents the mythical cartoon cowboy from a variety of angles.
