Overview
Le chef-d'oeuvre incontesté de Buster Keaton, l'un des plus grands comiques du cinéma, pour la première fois restauré en haute définition image par image.
Dans Le mécano de la général, Johnnie, conducteur de locomotive, veut prouver son courage à sa bien aimée en s'engageant dans l'armée. Gags, action et émotion se succedent au rithme de la musique composée spécialement par Joe Hisaichi. Le film s'achève sur une chanson inédite interprétée par Anna Mouglalis et écrite par Georges Moustaki.
