L'as des as

AKA: Ace of Aces

Country: France, Germany

Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy



A French boxer on his way to the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin befriends a Jewish boy en route and decides to save him from the Nazis.


  • At the time of its release, a group of 25 French critics called for a boycott of this movie, arguing that its extensive and well-funded advertising campaign would starve more 'important' movies of publicity. The film's star, Belmondo, answered in newspapers with the words of Jean Cocteau: "Critics like to blame those who hold their head a little bit higher than the others", adding that he made movies for audiences, not critics. A year later he said in an interview: "Critics say that my movies won't last. Who cares? I live now." Despite the critics, "L'as des as" was the second highest grossing movie in France in 1982, beaten only by E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982).
