Capitaine Achab / Captain Ahab



by Philippe Ramos (2008) with Denis Lavant, Jacques Bonnaffé, Jean-François Stévenin  (France, 100 mins.)

1840. Northeastern United States. Who could have imagined that this boy, an avid bible-reader who lives in a small hut in the woods, would one day become the captain of a whaling ship ? Nobody. Nevertheless, following a difficult childhood, Achab sets sail, becomes a great captain, and one day he crosses the path of a white whale … Moby Dick.
