A romantic/cop-buddy movie with a Gallic shrug. What could be better?
Phillip Noiret trains his new partner in the difference between working "by the book" and working the streets as they are, and along the way, romances of both the veteran and the newby make us want to be in Paris and in love, no matter our age.
I first saw this in my first five years of married life, and we've watched it many times as we've grown older, and it has something for every age in between.
Unfortunately, it is not available with English subtitles on DVD, and good VHS copies run close to $100, so we've limited our watching of our old Betamax tape to very special occasions.
The American company that released it (Orion Pictures) has be bought by MGM, but their website doesn't find it in their files, so is there any hope we'll ever see it on an American-format DVD? I certainly hope so, but meanwhile, I'm going to borrow or buy (if I have to) a DVD recorder to try to transfer my old Beta version to DVD.
