a minor but funny Fufu dealing with a bear (vhs)
29 December 2017 | by leplatypusSee all my reviews

I had this tape for a long time but delayed the review until the last moment as this FUFU movie is also a Gabin one. As much as Fufu is a true icon, I never liked Gabin and never understand why he sould be in French Pantheon: he is rustic, gruff, never smiling, one attitude fits all so well a real pain in the what you think. Maybe it's because the contrast is so huge that here Fufu really shines with his fallacious deals and really human defects. The movie also has Garvarentz as a music composer and his soundtrack is really swinging!
