Mocky like Audiard's stuff
1 August 2017 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

That is one more Michel Audiard's film which is rather hard to find. I don't think it is available in DVD, nor was it in VHS. Every Audiard's film as a director was a corny movie, far from the Gérard Oury's ones for instances. But as a screen writer, and especially dialogues, he will remain one of the best ever in France. His film are nevertheless fun to watch and pretty fun time waster. Concerning this movie, you can find some Jean-Pierre Mocky accents, which I did not particularly noticed in the other Audiard's features.

You can live without this Junk film, but if you are a die hard Audiard's fan, don't miss it.
