LA TRAVERSÉE DE PARIS

In a cold, hungrily-rationed, blacked-out City of Lights under the Occupation, a transaction involving worth-its-weight-in-gold black market pork from crabby, penny-pinching Montmartre butcher Louis de Funès is carried out like a modern-day drug deal. But straight arrow ex-cabbie/black-marketeer Bourvil can’t possibly manage the four-bags-full trek across nocturnal Paris himself, so he recruits meat-mooching, garrulous stranger-he-met-at-the-bar Jean Gabin – an adventurer who keeps getting them into, and then hilariously talking them out of, trouble with both the Germans and French police, as Bourvil’s nervous sweat pools in the gutter. But there’s a chilling, class-laden final twist.
