Truck drivers camaraderie
Another film which shows how Gilles Grangier's career in the fifties was unfairly neglected.Perhaps the Gabin/Moreau pairing does not always work well ,in spite of the actors' talent.She could be his daughter and the fact she is a schoolteacher does not help.As the character says " I prefer tea with milk;and I do not go much for eggs and sausages" .

All that remains rings true: the atmosphere ,on the roads where rain keeps falling down or in dark rooms where Ginette Leclerc (who used to portray a bitch as no other French actress could)plays the tearful widow' s part ,is sticky and dirty.It is also a good depiction of the world of truck drivers and their loyal camaraderie.The ending predates "Duel" by twenty years.
