La Baleine Blanche(1987)n.rar: A Lost Treasure of French Cinema

If you are a fan of French cinema, you might have heard of La Baleine Blanche, a rare and obscure film from 1987. But do you know the origin and the history of this film? And why is it so hard to find a copy of it online? In this article, we will explore the fascinating story behind La Baleine Blanche, a film that has been called "the holy grail of French TV movies" by some critics.


What is La Baleine Blanche?

La Baleine Blanche (The White Whale) is a two-part TV movie directed by Jean Kerchbron and adapted from the novel of the same name by Jacques Lanzmann. The film stars Jacques Fabbri as Léon, an old man who lives in a remote village in the Himalayas, and Yann Debray as Alex, a teenage boy who runs away from his wealthy family in Paris. The film follows their extraordinary adventure as they encounter a mysterious white whale in the mountains, and a young girl named Nora (played by Dany Saval) who becomes Alex's love interest.

The film is a mix of drama, fantasy, romance, and adventure, with stunning scenery and cinematography. The film also features a memorable soundtrack composed by Georges Delerue, who won an Oscar for his score for A Little Romance in 1979. The film was broadcast on French television in November 1987, and received positive reviews from critics and audiences alike.

Why is La Baleine Blanche so rare?

Despite its popularity and acclaim, La Baleine Blanche has never been released on DVD or any other digital format. The only way to watch the film is to find a VHS tape or a rare bootleg copy online. The reason for this is that the film was produced by Antenne 2, a French public broadcaster that was later renamed France 2. Antenne 2 had a policy of not keeping the rights to its productions, and instead sold them to other distributors or channels. As a result, many of its films and TV shows have been lost or forgotten over time.

La Baleine Blanche was one of those films that fell into obscurity after its initial broadcast. The rights to the film were sold to TF1, another French broadcaster, but TF1 never aired the film again or released it on any format. The film was also never shown outside of France, except for a few screenings at some film festivals. The only copies of the film that exist are those that were recorded by viewers on VHS tapes or downloaded from obscure websites.

How can I watch La Baleine Blanche?

If you are interested in watching La Baleine Blanche, you have two options: either find a VHS tape or download a file online. However, both options are not easy or legal. VHS tapes of La Baleine Blanche are very rare and expensive, and often have poor quality or missing parts. Downloading a file online is also risky and illegal, as you might encounter viruses or malware, or face legal consequences for piracy.

The file name "La Baleine Blanche(1987)n.rar" is one of the most common names for the bootleg copy of the film that circulates online. It is a compressed file that contains two video files: one for each part of the film. The file size is about 1.4 GB, and the video quality is low-resolution and pixelated. The file also has no subtitles or audio options, so you need to understand French to watch it.

The origin of this file is unknown, but some speculate that it was uploaded by someone who had access to the original master tape or a high-quality copy of the film. However, this file is not easy to find online, as it is often removed or deleted by authorities or websites. You might need to use special software or websites to access it, such as torrent clients or peer-to-peer networks.

Is there any hope for an official release?

Many fans of La Baleine Blanche have been hoping for an official release of the film on DVD or any other digital format for years. They have created petitions, websites, blogs, and social media pages to raise awareness and demand for the film. They have also contacted TF1, France 2, and other possible rights holders to ask for the film's release. However, so far, none of these efforts have been successful.

The main obstacle for an official release is the lack of interest and motivation from the rights holders. TF1, which owns the rights to the film, has shown no interest in releasing the film or selling the rights to another distributor. France 2, which produced the film, has also been reluctant to help or cooperate with the fans. The director, Jean Kerchbron, died in 2003, and the author, Jacques Lanzmann, died in 2006, so they cannot intervene or support the cause. The actors and the composer are also not involved or aware of the situation.

Another obstacle is the technical difficulty and cost of restoring and digitizing the film. The original master tape of the film might be damaged or lost, and the only available copies might be of low quality or incomplete. Restoring and digitizing the film would require a lot of time, money, and expertise, which the rights holders might not be willing to invest.

Therefore, unless there is a change of attitude or a miracle, it seems unlikely that La Baleine Blanche will ever see an official release. The film will remain a lost treasure of French cinema, and a cult classic for those who have seen it or want to see it.
