Written by Audiard for Gabin
23 December 2017 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

In this film, Gabin plays a character very close to the ones he had in UN SINGE EN HIVER and LE DRAPEAU NOIR FLOTTE SUR LA MARMITE. A more or less fake sailor, a man who impersonates a character whom he has never been, a kind of dreamer. This was a manufactured product for Gabin and made by Audiard.
