admirable work
9 June 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A crime. a case. a young Depardieu. an old Gabin. the tension. and the impecable story about family, tradition, guilt and justice. a film about the way to explore a case , having the right story, the best cast. and, sure, a huge Jean Gabin in a role of his last years. a film who propose questions. in the manner to convince. to change rules. to open new perspectives. one of works presenting the clear image of a world defining, in many aspects, us, people from old societies, with strong rules and deep vulnerabilities, near an English family under sky , on a road.
