The French desperate hours.
8 March 2006 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

Yannick Andrei worked wonders when it came to making storybook miniseries as "la Dame de Montsoreau" or " La Juive Du Château-Trompette" testify.This is his only silver screen work and it's not as good as his MTV films.

All the actors look so much the part they become caricatures: Michel Bouquet,Claude Chabrol's bourgeois;Michel Constantin,the criminal-who-keeps-his-word;Paul Crauchet the cop,and so on.

Bouquet's family (except for the mum-in-law who is shot as soon as the gangsters enter the house) is held hostage in his desirable mansion for he's become a man who knows too much (he was mistaken for an accomplice and he knows everything of the pack's future break in).And this peaceful man begins to play cat and mouse with the villains....till his brother-in-law lets the cat out of the bag and tells the police...

Bouquet takes trouble over a movie unworthy of his talent.
