Jappeloup - 2013 French film directed by Christian Duguay. The true story of a famous rider, an exceptional horse and a legendary meeting. At the start of the 1980s, Pierre Durand abandoned a promising legal career and threw himself into his true passion, showjumping. With his fathers backing, he gambled everything on a young horse who no one else had any faith in: Jappeloup. Too small, too stubborn, too impetuous, he had many faults, but nonetheless had a remarkable jumping ability. From competition to competition, the pair improved and began to make their mark on the showjumping world. But the Los Angeles Olympic Game s were a disaster for them, and Pierre had to face up to his shortcomings. With the help of his wife Nadia and groom Raphaëlle, Pierre regained Jappeloups confidence and built a relationship that took them to victory in the Seoul Olympics in 1988. Stars Guillaume Canet, Marina Hands and Daniel Auteuil. 130 minutes. In French with optional French or English subtitles. Rated PG in Canada.
