Sensational cast of giants!!! ALAIN DELON IS UNFORGETTABLE!!
16 April 2003 | by a_pleno_solSee all my reviews

Enchants this film to Me because it is directed with masterful hand by a sensational director as Julien Duvivier. This film is not inferior other more prestigious films in front of like "Tales of Manhattan".

Wonderful scenes rolled in Black and White and interpreted very well by many stars of exception: Danielle Darrieux, Françoise Arnoul, Fernandel, Mel Ferrer, Micheline Presle... but the best is ALAIN DELON, who shows why is one of the best actors in the world. I have seen this film 15 times. It catches of convincing the different episodies without boring. It's very interesting to see it.

Would be advisable that this magnificent film saw everybody it because it has everything: love, humor, passion, suspense... and unfergettables performances by greats stars !!!
