Le Père Tranquille Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Droll French comedian [[Performer~P104587~Noel-Noel~noëlnoël]] essays the title role in Le Pere Tranquille ([[Feature~V120075~The Quiet Daddy~thequietduel]]). Contrary to expectations, the star isn't a secret father, but in fact the unknown head of a WW2 resistance movement. By playing the fool whenever the Nazis are around and about, [[Performer~P104587~Noel-Noel~noëlnoël]] is able to conceal his double life and successfully carry out his various sabotage missions. This deft combination of comedy and melodrama builds to a particularly suspenseful climax. Le Pere Tranquille was directed by [[Performer~P85237~Rene Clement~renéclément]], who also helmed the classic "underground" film [[Feature~V102543~Battle of the Rails~missilesfromhell]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
