L'Abbé Pierre.
31 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

This priest ,looked upon by the French people as the contemporary Saint Vincent de Paul,for sure deserved better than this so-so film which does not do the great man justice.Whereas Maurice Cloche had brilliantly succeeded in 1947 in transferring Saint Vincent de Paul's life ("Monsieur Vincent" )to the screen,Denis Amar did not rise to the occasion.And however,the actor he chose was excellent:Lambert Wilson,one of the best contemporary French thespians .They put the weight on him and he carried it.Thanks to him ,the film is not boring.He confessed he would have played the part for free.Such is l'Abbé Pierre's popularity in France.
