"La Vache Et Le Président"  
aka:  The Boy And The Cow"

(2000 France)
90 minutes

Lead actor, boy age 10 :  Mehdi Ortelsberg


This film is a true delight.  It is odd, yet one of the better seen in recent years for humor and genuine acting by a young boy.


review :   Romain is a farmer in Brittany and owns a herd of about twenty cows. He has an eight year-old son called Lucas. He is a widower. Lucas's mother died in childbirth. When they first came to live on the farm, Romain gave his wife a cow from a very distinctive breed - a Galloway dreams (small and white, with big black ears). Romain dreams of travelling to far-off lands and named his cows after Polynesian islands. The Galloways cow is called Fatoré. At the beginning of our story Fatoré gave birth to a little calf called Maéva. Unfortunately, there were complications and Fatoré died. Struck by the same fate, Lucas and Maéva became extraordinarily good friends.


Perhaps the young boy, Mehdi Ortelsberg, (b. 16 mars, 1989) can be profiled as well.  He has three credits, including two movies, (the lead role in this film, as well as acting in a short film).


33 excellent, and very much full-sized photographs from the film can be seen at:

Thanks for the reminder. I do have this movie (without subtitles) so I'll get a profile done for it and him.
