I only saw this rare item more than thirty tears ago, on March 1979, on TF1 channel. Thirty years !!!
And since, I search for it, anywhere, everywhere and I won't never quit searching, even if it is written in my fate, my destiny to never make it. This is an absolute wonderful, terrific, outstanding french war movie about the resistance in the Cevennes mountains. Action packed and splendidly acted by great artists such as Bruno Cremer, Claude Brasseur, Charles Vanel. My memory for this film is rather fresh after such a long time. and, what a shame, we have never seen it again. It is however a Costa Gavras film, not an unknown director, made with totally unknown actors, for God's sake!!!
When I will find it, it will be a great day for me, folks !!!
And not only for me.
Shame on those idiots of DVD distributors or channels and networks executives who don't release this movie again.
Faithfully adapted from a Jean Pierre Chabrol novel.
