Johnny Hallyday,a French famous pop star was certainly overjoyed when he learned he had an American director for his turkey! But for John Berry who had directed John Garfield in his sensational "He ran all the way" ,it was an all time low.
Everything in this movie tries to sound "American" .From the -mediocre - songs that Johnny bellows out (the title track "A tout casser" ) to the motorbikes and the gang a la "the wild ones".Supporting cast includes Simone Signoret's daughter Catherine Allégret as Johnny 's girlfriend and Michel Serrault which has an original way of using vegetables.
Strictly for Hallyday's fans.
