A very, very low cost Grande Vadrouille (dad)
11 September 2016 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

An Englishman for RAF crashed in occupied France and needs the help of locals to get back home! Bourvil comes in and is pushed into a plot against Germans ? No it's not the movie with Fufu but the other one...

This classic French movie is regularly on TV but extraordinarily I skip it for years. Sure it's the last movie of Bourvil, a dear and good regretted giant of French cinema after war but it's also highly overrated: the story is a big mess here: Bourvil is friendly with Germans, he is bullied by English while he helps them, he is gone 1 year in England, an one night stand becomes an eternal love and made him a granddad, the mission is stupid, the French are just above peasants, the Germans are poor idiots, shoes fetishist or Africa lovers, and all the war action comes from stock reels and I don't forget the main song that is excruciating! Really there is nothing here and above all, not the famous Atlantic wall!

Finally, the best things were the DVD bonus: a funny and nostalgic making of told by the assistant who is now a famous director and the background of the real D-Day told by a teacher!
