Honoré Daumier, One Must Be of One’s Time


Honoré Daumier was the leading caricaturist of mid 19th century France, whose work had a significant political impact when censorship laws allowed it. A brilliant draftsman, his 4000 lithographs captured many aspects of Parisian life and drew the abiding admiration of the Paris public. The film traces his life and work. With the participation of three contemporary cartoonists, TIM, Plantu, and Koren.
