Le Fils de Gascogne (Gascogne's Son) is a French film directed by Pascal Aubier from a scenario by Patrick Modiano and Pascal Aubier, released on 8 May 1996.

The adventures of Harvey, guide of a group of Georgian singers in Paris, and Dinara their interpreter, are used as a framework to provide a fantastic and nostalgic evocation of the cinema of the 1960s.

Synopsis[edit]

Harvey, a timid provincial young man, accommodate a troop of Georgian choristers accompanied by Dinara, their interpreter (a quarter Russian: “my father is Tatar, my mother is half Russian, half Jewish”), and acts as their guide in Paris.

In a restaurant,a customer joins the singers and claims to recognize Harvey as the son of a script writer named Gascogne, who died twenty-five years earlier in an automobile accident. Marco, one of his friends, tries to profit from this situation, made all the easier as Harvey was born from an unknown father. He tries to find the reels of a film which Gascogne made just before his death in order to sell them to a collector.

During this search, he introduces a group of 1960s stars to the two young people, despite the initial scepticism of Harvey and the growing mistrust of Dinara.
