A decent oldie
This film describes the adventure of a group of friends who want to recover crates full of gold from a fall in Canada. I had a fond memory of it, which somehow faded with a recent viewing.
Lino Ventura is still good, but lame at times. Landscapes are fabulous and the music by Vladimir Cosma is still good in the main theme, although unfortunately pasted more or less continuously, which was not the smartest move.
Other characters and actors are not reaching that high, including Claudia Cardinale and Giraudeau (possibly the best one in the cast there).
A good portrait of the Canadian Wild West today, it remains a decent rental or discount buy if you're fond of Lino Ventura.
