With "L'Empreinte des Géants" ,Robert Enrico returns to his favorite subject:manly friendship against a hostile world.He had begun in this vein with his "les Grandes Gueules" and reached a peak with the following work "Les Aventuriers" .Nothing is left from the ambitious first efforts such as "Au Coeur de la Vie" (which would remain Enrico's best)and "La Belle Vie" .
People who liked "Les Grandes Gueules " will enjoy "l'Empreinte des Géants" .It's more of the same.The sawmill has been replaced by a highway building site.There are several good sequences but as a whole the movie leaves a little to be desired .It's interesting to note that Anne Wiazemsky,discovered by Bresson in "Au Hasard Balthazar" ,plays here the only "mainstream" part of her career .
