Storyline

Two adventurers and best friends, Roland and Manu, are the victims of a practical joke that costs Manu his pilot's license. With seeming contrition, the jokesters tell Roland and Manu about a crashed plane lying on the ocean floor off the coast of Congo stuffed with riches. The adventurers set off to find the loot. Going with them is Laetitia, an artistic young woman who treats them like brothers, plays along with their schemes, makes sculptures of found objects, and dreams of buying an old fort at the mouth of the Charente. The Congo tip turns out to be a double cross, and the adventurers must pick up the pieces. A trip to Fort Boyard completes the circle. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A breeze of refreshing air...
12 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you wish to know -or, to remember- that our world was once upon a time a beautiful and healthy one, please, would you like to taste -again- this excellent masterpiece...

Alain Delon, that Apollon of the Seventh Art, is in one of the best actings and appearances; he is simply wonderful again.

Lino Ventura is just the man needed for this masterpiece.

Joanna Shimkus -Laetitia- will remain, forever, in your mind after this masterpiece.

The soundtrack is too unforgettable. You can be sure that you will always hear in your soul the Song of Laetitia.

And, though Robert Enrico is not a very celebrated director,you will see also that he should be.
