  1. msmichel's rating of the film Four Bags Full

    French occupation era tale tells a blackly comic tale of two men transporting black market pork across Paris. If not for the tacked on ending this could have been something special.

  2. Hockley Cinema's rating of the film Four Bags Full

    The film astonishes as it progresses..... begins light-hearted and jocular, finishes sturdy and sternly cautionary. Tres, tres bien !

  3. Jason's rating of the film Four Bags Full

    I don't know for certain if Autant-Lara's film technically falls into the "Tradition of Quality" derided by the vanguard of the nouvelle vague, but it does definitely contain many well-appointed studio sets and an honest to goodness movie star. And as far as movie stars go, Hollywood never produced any greater than Jean Gabin. This is a wildly entertaining populist comedy on the fine subject of workaday resistance.

  4. Pierre.F's rating of the film Four Bags Full

    "Jusqu'où on peut aller en temps d'occupation"

  5. Patricia's rating of the film Four Bags Full

    Quelques touches esthétiques appréciables, mais sinon tout aussi incohérent qu'antipathique. Les coups de colère de Gabin sont inexplicables (et restent inexpliqués), ces discours inécoutables. Apart Batti - qui a peu de scènes - les acteurs campent des rôles caracaturaux, y compris de Funes et Bourvil. Un peu de finesse technique, un certain intérêt comme objet historique, c'est le mieux que je puisse dire.

  6. Muriel's rating of the film Four Bags Full

    Surprising farce with abrupt shifts in tone and plot, painting a less than heroic portrait of the French under the Occupation. Not a million miles away from JL G Berlanga's satires, with a touch of noir.

  7. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Four Bags Full

    SALAUDS DE PAUVRES! GABIN, DE FUNES, BOURVIL cabotinent à qui mieux mieux dans ce film sur l'occupation nazie. Diffusé COMME PAR HASARD le jour où Mme LE PEN se qualifie pour le 2ème tour de la présidentielle. Quelle coincidence! === GABIN, DE FUNES, BOURVIL overplay to whom better in this nazi occupation movie. Showed on the day Mrs LE PEN qualifies for the 2nd round of the presidential election. What a COINCIDENCE!
