Apologies for the English title (“Don’t Look Now – We’re Being Shot At”), this is not a Carry On film. Laced with English humour, a downed British aircrew and two reluctant French patriots endeavour to avoid the Nazis and blunder their way to freedom in the South of France and thence to England.
Starring the unlikely combination of Louis de Funès, Terry Thomas and André Bourvil, this is one of the greatest comic achievements of French cinema and is 50 years old this year.
