Aging French Rif Raff
5 July 2000 | by (Champ sur Drac) – See all my reviews

The same team (almost) and the same theme (almost), produced a masterpiece a few years before (Les tontons flingueurs) when French post war riff raff was still in style and carried some panache !

But as we were about to enter the 70's this "old world" of classy bandits and villains speaking dated slang did no longer show the same thrust. Their sense of humour got heavier and they were obviously not very comfortable in the modern environment... (remember the night of Léontine in the 60's modern design bedroom !).

This movie shows that. Still funny but not as hilarious as before. Good actors (marvellous Françoise Rosay) but a murky plot. Modern guys do not do it with the same style....
