Two great French stars in a comedy-drama directed by Claude Autant-Lara.
good WWII tale post WWII
"La traversée de Paris": Film a voir pour la culture générale. Il montre aussi comment se passait la vie sous l'occupation.
an excellent French film, with a great cast, some hilarious dialogues and great moments of cinema. A pure classic.
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.
Rien que pour Jean Gabin Ã§a vaut le dÃ©tour dÃ©jÃ ! Tout au long du film il m'a tuÃ©! Bourvil et de FunÃ¨s sont tt aussi bon ds ce film! La scÃ¨ne de rÃ¨glements de compte dans le cafÃ© avec Gabin et Bourvil est cultissime!Tout comme la scÃ¨ne dans la cave de de FunÃ¨s qd ils viennent prendre le cochon! Bref, un bon film franÃ§ais comme on savait en faire Ã l'Ã©poque!
A quite old French movie indeed. The characters Jean Gabi, Bourvil, and Louis deFunes are great, each one of them showing powerful emotions and acting based on quite different principles and aims. I liked the tricky games between the "captured" French and the German army.
"Dans chaque franÃ§ais, y a un cochon qui someille...ds chaque homme peut Ãªtre..." Jean Aurenche. Chef d'oeuvre inoubliable.
SALAUDS DE PAUVRES!!!!
trÃ¨s bon. Surtout la traditionelle scÃ¨ne de colÃ¨re avec Gabin
