A talented jack-of-all-trades of the last century, Maurice Baquet was not just a great cellist. This friend of Prévert and Doisneau also had a passion for the mountains. A passion he lived out, summer and winter in Chamonix. Gilles Chappaz's film pays him a fitting tribute. A documentary film written and directed by Gilles Chappaz, with commentary by Hervé Bodeau and cello by Florian Laforge. A top musician, a member of the Groupe Octobre, a fantasist, a theater performer, a film actor, a mountaineer and a skier, Maurice Baquet was always on the move, and his life revolved around two common threads: the cello and the mountains. In fact, he once described himself as a "cellist-skier", "all alone" in this category, prompting world champion skier James Couttet to say: "Of all the skiers I know, he's the best cellist"; echoing this, André Navarra, Professor at the Conservatoire National Supérieur, went one better: "Of all the cellists I know, he's the best skier".Throughout his varied yet coherent career, Baquet has contributed to the joyful, artistic image of the mountains. To tell us about Maurice and all his adventures, who better than his alter-ego: Cérébos, the faithful cello that never left his side. From Paris to Chamonix, from theater stages to granite slabs and snow-covered slopes, let's follow Cérébos, cross the century and, above all... smile!
