A grandiose fresco by the director of "Bonnie and Clyde"
A journalist comes to collect the testimony of Jack Crabb, 121 years old, the last survivor of the battle of Little Bighorn who saw the victory of the Indians over the troops of General Custer. The old man begins to tell the story of his life: the massacre of his parents by the Pawnee Indians, his adoption by the Cheyenne where he received the nickname of Little Big Man, then his return among the Whites in the middle of the Indian wars...
Directed by Arthur Penn (The Ruthless Pursuit) in 1970, Little Big Man tells the learning story of Jack Crabb, anti-hero tossed between two cultures – admirably embodied by Dustin Hoffman –, through a succession of adventures addressing registers multiple (comedy, lyrical drama, reflective western). A grandiose fresco on the conquest of the West, to contemplate in its sublime restored version!
