Good performance by Hanin and Darmon
21 March 2002 | by totchoSee all my reviews

This movie tells the story of the chef of a famous Marseille restaurant, Aimé Prado (Roger Hanin), who has a fishing accident and is saved by Julien, a man who lives alone in the woods (Gérard Darmon). After he recovers from his injuries, Prado wants to find the mysterious man who saved his life. He manages to find him, and tries to bring him back to "civilization". But later Prado learns why Julien is hiding in the wild.

While this movie is not particularly exciting or original, I still recommend it for the performances of Hanin and Darmon. As usual, Hanin has lots of charisma, while Darmon plays very well the role of the mysterious lone wolf.
