Synopsis

Throughout the 20th century, the roaming, lucid eye of Henri Cartier-Bresson, considered to be the greatest photographer of the last century and the grandfather of photojournalism, has captured the world of Africa in the 1920s, crossed the tragic fortunes of the Spanish Civil War, accompanied the liberation of Paris, caught a weary Gandhi just hours before his assassination, and witnessed the victory of the Communists in China. Actress Isabelle Huppert, playwright Arthur Miller, publisher Robert Delpire and the photographers Elliot Erwitt, Josef Koudelka and Ferdinando Scianna present their own very personal views on Cartier-Bresson as friend and photographer.
