Audiard and Gabin teams up again for our pleasure
13 December 2006 | by (lyon, france) – See all my reviews

Based on a novel by Georges Simenon, this movie belongs to three different genres; drama,romance and thriller.It is said to be Audiard's( the guy who wrote the lines) favorite movie he worked on.As many movies written by Michel Audiard,half the interest comes from these lines from a man who knew like no one else to embed the wittiness and the aptness altogether in memorable phrases and sentences. The directing is restrained like many movies of Gilles Grangier,without any flaw or stroke of genius. Jean Gabin performs in a stark and impressing way, helped by a great cast of second fiddles, bandying the lines of Michel Audiard for our jubilation,as always.
