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 ?

beware!
30 March 2001 | by (Frankfurt) – See all my reviews

doubtless one of the best movies by granier-deferre and the acting is superb. so is the interplay of montage, photography and music. all throughout the running time everything is handled with great care and sophistication. a must-see if you like french drama. but take care: you're going to watch an extremely dark and pessimistic film. there's no light, there's no hope. nowhere.
