Many very good French actors when they were younger: Jean-Paul Belmondo, François Périer, Claude Rich, Annie Girardot, Michel Serrault, Paul Meurisse, Marie-José Nat, Dany Robin, Martine Carol. Many very good French directors when they were younger: Henri Verneuil, René Clair, Jean Delannoy, Jean-Paul Le Chanois, Henri Decoin, Christian-Jaque, Michel Boisrond. But the film is not great, it is very didactic and infantile.
