Gran Torino

Gran Torino

Walt Kowalski est un ancien de la guerre de Corée, un homme inflexible, amer et pétri de préjugés surannés. Après des années de travail à la chaîne, il vit replié sur lui-même, occupant ses journées à bricoler, traînasser et siroter des bières. Avant de mourir, sa femme exprima le voeu qu’il aille à confesse, mais Walt n’a rien à avouer, ni personne à qui parler. Hormis sa chienne Daisy, il ne fait confiance qu’à son M-1, toujours propre, toujours prêt à l’usage…
Ses anciens voisins ont déménagé ou sont morts depuis longtemps. Son quartier est aujourd’hui peuplé d’immigrants asiatiques qu’il méprise, et Walt ressasse ses haines, innombrables – à l’encontre de ses voisins, des ados Hmong, latinos et afro-américains « qui croient faire la loi », de ses propres enfants, devenus pour lui des étrangers. Walt tue le temps comme il peut, en attendant le grand départ, jusqu’au jour où un ado Hmong du quartier tente de lui voler sa précieuse Ford Gran Torino… Walt tient comme à la prunelle de ses yeux à cette voiture fétiche, aussi belle que le jour où il la vit sortir de la chaîne.
Lorsque le jeune et timide Thao tente de la lui voler sous la pression d’un gang, Walt fait face à la bande, et devient malgré lui le héros du quartier. Sue, la soeur aînée de Thao, insiste pour que ce dernier se rachète en travaillant pour Walt. Surmontant ses réticences, ce dernier confie au garçon des « travaux d’intérêt général » au profit du voisinage. C’est le début d’une amitié inattendue, qui changera le cours de leur vie.
Grâce à Thao et sa gentille famille, Walt va découvrir le vrai visage de ses voisins et comprendre ce qui le lie à ces exilés, contraints de fuir la violence… comme lui, qui croyait fermer la porte sur ses souvenirs aussi aisément qu’il enfermait au garage sa précieuse Gran Torino…

A priori : Un chef d’oeuvre d’après les critiques que j’en ai entendu. La bande annonce donne aussi envie de voir le film.
Verdict : Excellent, comme annoncé.
