A Great de Funès Movie and a pretty "Guignol" version
I invite all Louis de Funès' fans to see one of his first important role ! I also invite anarchists and Guignol fan to watch it because it's a funny movie concerning a guy who lives in the woods and in all illegally. A "Guignol style" story where a Forrest Guard (and cop, played by Moustache) wants absolutely arrest a little bandit who gives services to the little city of Montpaillard.
Louis de Funès is great and this movie has one of the most funny fishing contest of Cinema. The famous "54" !
It's also one of Claude Rich and Pierre Mondy's first roles too. Claude Rich is like in lots of movies he used to do on this time : the young shy guy in love. Pierre Mondy, him, has a funny role : He's the director of a cool prison where prisoners are happy and who often gets a permission to get out have a little trip. Not really a realist vision of Jail but a really funny one :)
