Nice movie!
2 June 2004 | by Y-SlySee all my reviews

I haven't seen a Belmondo movie for a long... long time. This movie (Le Guignolo) is a really funny film with the always great Jean-Paul Belmondo. He is not using stunts again, and he is acting very good. Michel Galabru was fine too, I like him... but he was not too much in the film. I recommend this movie to everybody who likes Belmondo movies. Ohh... I almost forgot, I saw this movie on DVD and the quality of the picture was really awesome. It's an old movie (it is 24 years old) and they did a good job. Go and see other Belmondo movies, and buy them of course. Georges Lautner's movie is in my opinion, this movie is 7.5 out of 10. Great action-comedy, Belmondo forever!!!
