Movie Info

Less ambitious than his previous Golgotha, Julien Duvivier's La Bandera is nonetheless more entertaining.

Was Julien Duvivier an auteur (like his countryman Jean Renoir), a skilled craftsman (like Michael Curtiz) or a pure hack (like, say, Ray Enright)?

Audience Reviews for La Bandera

it's no pépé le moko but it's a whole lot of fun. the film opens as gabin flees the scene of a murder which is never fully explained. soon he's in barcelona, cavorting with topless dancers and drag queens, pretty risque even for a french film of the period. however he soon tires of looking over his shoulder and joins the spanish foreign legion, a fighting force where names are assumed and no questions asked. his troop heads for morocco, where he falls in love with a bedouin dancer, played by annabella with henna tattoos, but all the while someone is on his trail...
