Initially reluctant, he is eventually convinced by his friend Bravida, who warns him about the growing shame the delay has caused him all across town.

Tartarin leaves for the desert and as soon as the first lion is in sight, the "Prince" escapes with his money.

Alphonse Daudet's Tartarin....
11 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

....transferred to the screen by Raymond Bernard whose best films are not comedies (Hugo's "les Misérables" and his pacifist "les Croix de Bois" one of the best films dealing with WW1).

After seeing a lion in the local zoo,Tartarin begins to think that shooting caps is nor worthy of a hunter.And he tells his friends he's going to leave for Africa where greater glories are waiting for him.But he's too fearful to carry out his plans.However, his good friends are not prepared to accept it and his honor is at stake...

Raimu is ideally cast as Tartarin,and the film is pleasant,if not particularly memorable.
