100 YEARS OF MICHEL AUDIARD
Box of 21 films on DVD Gaumont, 79.99 euros.
The most famous dialogue writer of French cinema (but also of the universe) was a hell of a workaholic.The proof: from “Quai des blondes”, a whimsical little thriller from the 1950s (with Barbara Laage and Dario Moreno!), To “ She doesn't drink, she doesn't smoke, she doesn't flirt, but… she talks ”, a very nasty comedy with Annie Girardot (without forgetting an unforgettable song by Sim) from 1970, Michel Audiard made the greatest talk: 20 films with Gabin, who specified that “saying Audiard is not so easy”.Listen to Bernard Blier in “Cent Mille Dollars au soleil” (1964), Belmondo in “A monkey in winter” (1962) or Paul Meurisse in “Passent les pheasans” "(1965), it's cuteness, feast for the ears, sculling guaranteed.In the box, there is obviously" the Tontons flingueurs "(1963), an unsurpassable moment of biture, often imitated, never equaled ( do not try).
