Le Grand Restaurant
Jacques Besnard (1966)
Still in my De Funes phase, I’ve re-watched a movie I haven’t seen many times (for a reason).
Septime, head of a high-end restaurant in Paris, gets in a lot of trouble when the president of a foreign country is kidnapped during dinner.
The Bad: The story is not that interesting, the chase sequence feels long
The Good: Great performance by Louis de Funes, some scenes are very funny, like the piano dance scene or the Hitler shadow. I love Bernard Blier, he’s so good in this kind of role
My opinion: It is a fun watch, especially for those few really good scenes. But the rest of the movie is very average. Not among the best Louis de Funes movies.
