Louis de Funès,
It was the sixties and Gabin's career was still commercially buoyant .Well,artistically,it was downhill.With few exceptions ,most of the movies of the sixties and seventies are simply forgettable.Such is "le Tonnerre de Dieu" .At the time Michèle Mercier and Robert Hossein were the heroes of the storylike saga "Angélique Marquise des Anges" .Pairing both of them with Gabin was nothing but a commercial trick.Mercier plays the hooker and Hossein her pimp.Gabin ,a vet surgeon,falls in love with her and defends her against the villain.But the vet's neighbor also falls for the girl.
This could have been made in the thirties,and Denys De La Patellière 's listless directing does not help.
