Just watched this movie on the french TV5 channel. Nice change from a lot of french movies with either too much unnecessary sex scenes, or so complicated plots that you need to take a handful of aspirin to follow. This one is to cinema what easy listening is to music. A simple plot, two exciting places i.e. Le Sentier in Paris and a nice village in Auvergne, and most of all two great actors. The interaction between Depardieu and Boujenah is perfect. The Stern brothers are an interesting duet between the younger who is totally grateful to the family from Auvergne which helped them during the war and his older brother who believes that gratitude is not eternal. To conclude, I liked a lot this unpretentious film and I was pleasantly surprised these 100 minutes passed so fast.
