good work
20 June 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A film about life. with its basic ingrediends - from mariage to succes , end of relation and the chain of questions to the good work of Jean Gabin and admirable performance of Georgette Anys. yes, it is not a great movie. but it is a good one, well crafted, using beautiful locations , the right atmosphere and the science of Gabin to propose the right traits of his character . short, a decent story, mixing few pieces of different genres and proposing a smart dialogue. so, a real good film.
