Christian Gion's best picture
4 May 2008 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Christian Gion was never a masterpiece maker. Some of his films are even not particularly recommendable, I must admit (I think of Aldo Maccionne's infamous vehicles, for instance). But this title delivers far more than any French comedies fan could expect. We easily get fond of the characters and the plot evolves with some very funny gags and touching moments. Performance by the cast is more than satisfying and Henry Guybet certainly display some real talent here. Supporting actors are all great, Michel Galabru, Claude Jade, Claude Piéplu and Claude Dauphin... But the teenage actors also steal the show at times. A very sweet film I haven't seen in years and I highly recommend to anyone willing to spend a good moment watching a film. "Le Pion" rules!!!!
