The movie

With the black market rampant in occupied Paris, the brave but not very clever Martin (Bourvil) is asked by the grocer Jambier (Louis de Funès) to transport a neatly cut-up pig hidden in several suitcases from one end of the city to the other. Abandoned by his usual partner, Martin meets Grandgil (Jean Gabin) in a bistro and offers him the job, although he is worried about his behaviour.

The “Perce neige” Foundation

A legendary French actor, Lino Ventura was also the father of a “child like no other”. His fight to raise society’s awareness of disability was his life’s work. It was a role that gave rise to the Perce-Neige Foundation, now chaired by his grandson Christophe Lasserre-Ventura.
