You say you want a revolution...
7 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

....but you come too soon.

André Hugon made the first talkie in France ("Les Trois Masques",1929).His whole work has sunk into oblivion,but this "Gaspard de Besse" indicates that this is relatively unfair.

A good adventure film featuring Raimu as a French Robin Hood's brother,"Gaspard de Besse" takes place in Provence in the years preceding the French Revolution.It depicts the dubious milieu of the "law":the drunken judge's son and his friends hang an old man just for fun.So Gaspard , his brother and their band steal from the Rich and give to the Poor.Historic character Mirabeau -who was to play a prominent part in the events of 1789- appears in one scene.

The script is not always satisfying but there are witty lines and a rebellious mind all along the film.

André Hugon "signed" his movie after the last picture.
