  • FISCHER's rating of the film The Wild Oat

    Pas vraiment de quoi manger du pain blanc avec cette histoire fort quelconque, hormis la prestation "pagnolesque" du brave Fernandel décidément un acteur exceptionnel, trop souvent confiné dans des scénarii souvent médiocres et banals. Reste un sympathique microcosme d'un petit village méridional...
