Henri “Papillon” Charierre is sentenced to life in prison and transported to the penal in French Guyana. Aboard ship on the voyage over, he meets Louis Dega, a forger.His next attempt is somewhat more successful and he actually spends a idyllic time with a tribe of Central America Indians. Once caught however, he does 5 years in solitary confinement. Once released, he decides to make one final attempt at freedom. They form a bond that will last them a great many years. The conditions at the penal colony are horrific and Papillon desperately wants to escape.
His first attempt ends quickly in failure and as a result he spends 2 years in solitary confinement. Henri “Papillon” Charrière was a crook, a bad egg, he however was sent to the notorious, inescapable, prison fortress of Devil’s Island for a murder he didn’t commit. The film, as is the book, is a fictionalised account of Charrière’s time at the penal colony. Something that is crucial for us to feel the confines of this penal colony life. These men are doing hard time, lets not soft soap it Hollywood style, lets get the feel right, something, that much like Don Siegel also did in 79 with his excellent Escape From Alcatraz, Schaffner does exceptionally well. He is helped enormously by two fabulous performances from McQueen & Hoffman.
The film is probably best described as being a stirring drama of friendship under duress, endurance and opportunism, all neatly blended with an adventure based heart. Schaffner directs it with great technical skill, for in a film with minimal dialogue, he manages to perfectly stifle the viewer with a hot sweaty atmosphere.
