La nuit du lendemain.
26 November 2003 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

A disguised remake of "the night of the following day" (1968).Johnny Hallyday has always been a lover of the actor's studio style and it seems that he wanted to be Marlon Brando here ,complete with cap .Everything recalls the American model,even the beach and the unfortunate victim.Robert Hossein is an excellent French actor and a sometimes good director,but here,it's plagiarism.
