One of those masterpieces that never get old. 1962. Henri Verneuil from the book of the same name (Antoine Blondin). It's about drinking. There are two kinds of drinkers: the princes of the drink, and the mediocre drinkers. The princes of the drink are big travellers, they fantasize their own world to get through the real world. When they meet, it leads to a fireworks. Gabin and Belmondo are delightful. Noel Roquevert as well. Well, all of them actually. Pretty sure the free tone of the dialogues (adapted by Audiard from Antoine Blondin's book) had a great influence on Bertrand Blier. Musique by Michel Magne, and he has fun. Belmondo dreams of Spain (so you have castanets when he's around) and Gabin dreams of China (so you have Chinese music when he recalls his time).
DON'T WORRY HE WON'T GET FAR ON FOOT - 5/10. Well-meaning but zzzzzzzzzzz. I dozed off for twenty minutes.
THE NIKAIDOS' FALL - 7.5/10. Surprising to see an Iranian director making a Japanese film without feeling out of place. The story was not exactly original but was a good one to delve into.
TORA SAN WISH YOU WERE HERE - 8/10. Tora san was the main character of a popular Japanese film series of 48 instalments(!) by one of the Japanese greats Yoji Yamada. I watched none of it but was otherwise very engaged in this tribute/reunion film
Saw this on MensTennisForums.com and thought it was fun, so let's play it here ;)

1: Andre Agassi...
