Claude Faraldo – Deux lions au soleil AKA Two Lions in the Sun (1980)

here are the two IMDB comments :

“Themroc ” ,what a colossal demagogy! a monumental spate of clichés of the post-68 era.

Deux lions au soleil ” is a different matter ,because there are two actors whose chemistry is perfect.Jean-François Stevenin ( he was a Truffaut’s favorite :”day for night” and mainly the wonderful schoolteacher in “l’argent de poche” ) and Jean-Pierre Sentier ( whom I did not really know) give wonderful performances.Forget the class struggle (as Faraldo finally forgets it during the story) and you have two human beings .Faraldo jettisoned all his post 68 clichés (Why do we work? Why are there wealthy people? Why are we working for peanuts?) which were present at the beginning of the movie but slowly disappear as the story progresses. Read More »
