Uncle Brel
24 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

The first picture is a painting ,while a voice over tells us that ,when king Louis XV was reigning,France was the country of the Douceur de Vivre .An idyllic view ,which must be far from the reality,but who cares? This is a vivid picaresque story,full of Joie de Vivre,which features singer Jacques Brel as a bon vivant, a womanizer fond of the bottle,but who falls for the innkeeper's daughter,played by Truffaut's protégée ,Claude Jade.Besides he is a doctor,who treats the Poor for free.His worst enemy is the Marquis de Cambyse who humiliates him by forcing him to kiss his a.....The wind of the soon-to-come revolution is softly blowing in the wind.But it does blow.
