This is a good thriller from the eighties
11 April 2005 | by georges-22See all my reviews

this is a good thriller: it shows how was our way of living in a deep part of France in the early 80.the life at that time was far more romantic that nowadays. Marlène Jobert is charming , Bruno Cremer is great and Jacques Villeret (who died in early 2005) shows how great actor can play multiple type of characters (in this movie, he is playing the bad which is not the character he was used to play). Of course the "action" side could not be compared to a "James Bond" but it gives time to appreciate the characters.Here are not gadgets, no sophisticated weapons but just the life people used to live at that time in South part of France. Beyond that, a wonderful jazzy piano soundtrack from Maurice Vander adds a romantic feeling to that movie.
