Coluche's generosity is legend ...
6 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

...in France where even people like me who do not go much for his stuff admire him for all that he did for the poor (and is still doing thanks to his wife Veronique and all their friends.)

Coluche should be best remembered for "Le Fou De Guerre" ,his most ambitious work.Now disturbing (and his soldiers have really a bad time),now almost crying like a motherless child (the scene of the psychological test where he wants the mom to come back to his little boy),now funny ("these drawings could be Romeo and Juliet").He runs the whole gamut.

We need more generous artists like Coluche during our trouble times.We miss him.
