  1. El Biffo's rating of the film La bandera

    Jean Gabin made, I believe, six films with Julien Duvivier. So far I have seen four and they are all great. Here he joins the Foreign Legion and marries a beautiful Bedouin. There's transfolk in this picture, too.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film La bandera

    Un classique des nombreux films sur la Légion Etrangère qui nous donne l'occasion de revoir Gabin dans un rôle puissant et fatal, à sa mesure et son talent... www.cinefiches.com

  3. azoulay's rating of the film La bandera

    Le destin est implacable, Gabin et le Vigan sont au sommet, le film file à 100 à l'heure, intense palpitant et tragique. Et malgré les images d'Epinal sur la légion et l'amitié des hommes (ils y meurent tous). Sur l'Orient aussi et ses femmes belles et passionnées se transforment en désespoir. Film noir qui annonce le grand Duvivier à venir

  5. cyrikelly's rating of the film La bandera

    Déjà on remarque le talent de Jean Gabin. Il faut prêter l'oreille...la bande-son est fatiguée. Un bon film.

  6. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film La bandera

    30's French films have a rawness that American films lost after the code took over. "La Bandera" is a beauty with tender performances from Gabin and Annabella. The photography is amazing. Some of it looks documentary. Duvivier was a master craftsman.

  7. Daniel S.'s rating of the film La bandera

    Paris, Barcelona, the African desert. Suzy Prim, Viviane Romance and Annabella, three women that will light up Pierre Gilieth's path to his ineluctable sacrifice. Jean Gabin, Robert le Vigan and Pierre Renoir, three performances that will stay in the annals of the French cinema of the 30's. Masterpiece.

  8. Erik Gregersen's rating of the film La bandera

    If Americans, Brits, etc. join the French Foreign Legion to forget and escape the past, what do the French join? The Spanish Foreign Legion obviously.

  9. Scout Tafoya's rating of the film La bandera

    Gabin's most modern performance.
