In the late 1930s, a young machinist named Maurice Richard distinguished himself as an ice hockey player of preternatural talent. Although that was enough to get him into the Montreal Canadiens, his frequent injuries cost him the confidence of his team and the fans. In the face of these doubts, Richard eventually shows the kind of aggressive and skillful play that would make him one of the greatest players of all time as "The Rocket." However for all his success, Richard and his fellow French Canadians face constant discrimination in a league dominated by the English speaking. Although a man of few words, Richard begins to speak his own mind about the injustice which creates a organizational conflict that would culminate in his infamous 1955 season suspension that sparks an ethnic riot in protest. In the face of these challenges, Richard must decide who exactly is he playing for.Written by

Roy Dupuis has played the part of Maurice Richard three times. First in'Heritage Minutes (1991)' - a series of short sixty-second films depicting events or characters from Canadian history- and later in 'Maurice Richard: Histoire d'un Canadien' See more »
The RCAF officer who rejects Maurice Richard's enlistment is wearing an only slightly modified modern Canadian air force uniform. At that time, the RCAF uniform was virtually identical to that of the RAF, which features light- and dark-blue bands on the cuffs as officer insignia. This officer's uniform very clearly had gold insignia on the cuffs, in keeping with what the modern air force has worn since the mid-1980s. See more »
This movie is a real success. Maurice Richard was one of the best and fearless hockey player that ever was, he never gave-up. The people that worked on this movie really did a great job. All the locations where very well re-created especially the Montréal Forum. The actor who played Toe Blake was excellent and Roy Dupuis did a great job (he really does look like Maurice Richard). The hockey scenes where very well done, you feel like your on the ice. The attention to details is impressive it really looks like the fifties. Many actual hockey players ad a little part in this movie (like Mike Ricci) and did well. Richard worked hard to get to the NHL, he worked in a day factory and in the evening played hockey even if he was extremely tired. A must see movie for all the hockey fans.
