Goofs

Just after the credits (3:30) and just before the end credits (71:21) we see twice the same scene. A stretcher is pushed through an hospital emergency entrance. The first time, a nurse comes from the right while the stretcher is in the middle of a corridor. She asks an unknown person 'Bouin, ça s'écrit comment ?' answered by 'as you say it B O U I N'. (How do you spell BOUIN). The second time, the stretcher goes all the way to the back, and turn (and Gabin's face is covered, signaling his death) before the nurse appears, and she says this time 'Julien Bouin, ça s'écrit comment ?

Stellar acting!
26 December 2002 | by (the rock) – See all my reviews

To make a review short, the acting by Jean Gabin and Simone Signoret is nothing short of fantastic. The film is a downer but it's worth watching. There's something in French cinema that's unique. It often creates towering, almost mythical characters through mundane situations. The two actors make anyone from Hollywood look amateurish.
