a fairly good movie, dominated by the performance of Coluche
6 December 1998 | by (Montreal Canada) – See all my reviews

Michel Colucci (Coluche) was known as a fairly vulgar comedian. His performance in that movie puts him among the great actors. One thinks of Humphrey Bogart in "the Caine mutiny" when watching him create the role of the mentally disturbed army surgeon. In that particular role, I would even put Coluche ahead of Bogart.
