Storyline

Arsène Baudu and Hyacinthe, a pair of small-time crooks, fall prey to Alexandre Larsan-Bellac, who involves them (against their will) in high profile swindling. But their success is quite limited. For starters they are deceived by Mrs. Paterson, a charming widow. Later on, Ribeiro, a Portuguese contractor and former victim of the two crooks, traces them and forces them to work on one of his building sites as damages. Just then, Larsan-Bellac resurfaces with plans to lure Ribeiro once again... Written by Guy Bellinger

For Audiard's fans only
28 March 2008 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Mostly unknown, but could be regarded as a masterpiece of french writer Michel Audiard. This has been written during its golden years, somewhere between "Les Barbouzes" and "Ne nous fâchons pas". Edouard Molinaro admitted that it was as much his movie as Audiard's one. "Quand passent les faisans" gathers part of the team of the famous "Tontons Flingueurs" (Bernard Blier, Jean Lefebvre) as a pair of lousy crooks (feasant in french slang). They eventually meet a greater professional who tries to teach them higher tricks, Paul Meurisse. Thus, it offers Meurisse one of it's best role in a comedy. He can be considered as one of the most classy french actor ever, and one of the rare who includes a very English non-sense in its play and attitude. As far as cinema art is concerned we are far away from Orson Wells, but it is not the point. Each and every line of the actors are delightful. That's why (french)spectators are here. For the rest of the world, assuming that a non-french speaker would ever get the opportunity, not speaking of the will, of seeing it, all of this must appear as a great mystery ...
