Movie Info

In Nazi-occupied Paris, despite a thriving appearance, many remain deprived of crucial food, including pork. In financial desperation, upright Marcel Martin (Andre Bourvil) begins working for the black market. On a night when he must deliver four bags of pig carcasses, he enlists the help of street artist Grandgil (Jean Gabin). Through a long night avoiding German patrols, the men make their way across Paris to deliver their goods, often more at war with each other than their actual enemy.

Audience Reviews for Four Bags Full

  • Sep 10, 2012
    In "La Traversee de Paris," the easy part is getting the live pig to Jambier's(Louis de Funes) butcher shop where the last thing it will hear is accordion music. Since this is occupied France, the hard part is to get the sections of the pig across Paris to the intended parties so a profit can be made. In order to do so, Marcel(Bourvil) and Mariette(Jeannette Batti) go to a bar to meet their contact but he has been arrested for smuggling the soap that Grandgil(Jean Gabin) uses to wash his dirty hands before he takes on the job himself and renegotiates a new contract with Jambier. "La Traversee de Paris" is a taut, funny and enjoyable movie about a very serious subject and time, made at a time far enough removed that the audience could now laugh about it. In fact, the movie, immersing itself in the details of the time and place when the most precious commodity could be considered trust, comes down surprisingly in favor of the black market. On an artistic level, it has a couple of neat touches like a key scene filmed mostly in silhouette and how Jean Gabin is introduced who really needs no introduction. So, it is a shame that there is a needlessly tacked on epilogue that the movie could just have easily done without.
