IP5: The Island of Pachyderms 1992
IP5: L’île aux pachydermes (original title)
1h 59min | Drama | 12 June 1992 (France)
Two young robbers meet an old man. The three start traveling together, looking for the same thing.
This movie has an awful reputation in France because it could be involved in Montand death by stroke. Thus it’s really awkward to watch him die in the movie, in a hospital bed by a same stroke. Anyway I picked it for Géraldine who was an excellent choice as she plays again a nurse: as she is always focused and caring, this kind of part suits her nicely. At the end, it’s a movie that is one of its kind: you can feel that Beinex has a real talent with the camera and light and can also write a story about generations and also about our country France.
