  • FISCHER's rating of the film The Thirst for Gold

    Lorsque la folie de l'or s'en prend au dénommé Urbain Donnadieu, dirigeant d'une entreprise de construction de maisons préfabriquées, son existence va se transformer en vrai drame. De plus, notre bonhomme a décidé de faire passer en Suisse, un joli magot de cinq cents lingots d'or dissimulés dans un anonyme mur de briques. La cupidité n'a pas de frontière ! www.cinefiches.com
