LES CRACKS (DIDIER BECU)
5 April 2004 | by (Gent, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Long before "Smokey and the bandit" (God bless...) and "The Cannonball run" there was "Les cracks". We follow Bourvil who just made a revolutionary bicycle that he wants to get used in Paris-San Remo, the first big cycletour of the century (it's 1901) but due to many circumstances Bourvil ends up being bankrupt and a very stupid (but clever) debtclaimer wants everything Bourvil has, including the bicycle... What we then see is during the whole movie the chase after Bourvil. Let's make it right from the start, we saw the great French comedian in much better movies and the hommage to slapstick from director Alex Joffe can work on your nerves as this is like some copy from a Buster Keatonmovie in colours, but as it often go with French movies, you tend to laugh.
