This film is a true gem lost in the french film industry!
18 July 2001 | by HaggisbasherSee all my reviews

This film is a corker! It is one of depardieu's finest, and is well worth watching! I saw this film and was instantly put off by the fact it was subtitled (I only speak french adequately, not well enough to get by with a whole film!) but after 2 minutes I was engrossed! This film is a MUST!!!!
