I don't think that's a good film, but only a shadow of the former best Lautner's work, nothing to do with what he did in the sixties or even seventies. But after all he gave us a great movie in 1981 with LE PROFESSIONNEL, which also was far from LE PACHA or LES TONTONS FLINGUEURS...So you can do something different and also stay at your best. Only the overall period fashion changes, and so the director has to adapt his style too. Back to this film, it's really corny, ridiculous, and Belmondo, supposed to play an old timer, alcoholic, a has been, looks like an athlete, a sixty old athlete with grey hair, but an athlete, walking, climbing stairs, like an athlete, showing a lean and sharp body. Raimu was the perfect actor for this kind of character. OK, Belmondo tried something else than crime flicks with plenty of stunts and revolvers, car chases and fist fights. He tried something different in the line of ITINERAIRE D'UN ENFANT GATE, but, for me, he failled.
That's only my own opinion.
