Clouseau versus Duroc: you bet
26 September 2006 | by ShampooagneSee all my reviews

At least as imposing as most Pink Panthers. I gave a ten in order to increase the global rating; feel free to give tens until the rating reaches nearly eight.

A comedy with uncommon features:

— No special lens effect to give depth to the picture. It's particularly static and cold over there, and looks like it was made for television.

— You're mostly being taken to a (french) highway's lunch stop area, where dramatic events keep a kind of tension going. Not far from those, a nice hitch-hiker-friendly driver, capable of turning any normal conversation into a hypnotizing act of evangelism.

— There's a truth drug scene, it reminds me of the one in Tintin's Flight 714.

They may not have spent as much money as in James Bond to carry out this project, yet spy-film gear abounds in "Le Moustachu". Brand new fluorescent orange safety uniforms, a melodic car horn, and a huge Domeco's truck with a rotating cabin will make it for the show...Also genuine stunts, though there's no nervous editing to enhance them.
