Le baron de l'écluse

The Baron of the Locks

The lucky Baron wins a boat in a card game and takes off with his former lover to find new adventures. Adverse circumstances land them in a small town, where the Baron's seafaring companion leaves for more attractive scenery offered by a wealthy local man. Meanwhile, there is a certain charming cafe owner that the Baron finds irresistible -- at least for awhile.

Un casting parfait, des dialogues de Audiard mais il manque un peut de souffle pour en faire un grand film qui reste néanmoins très bon.
