Former boxer “Grizzli” seems to owe his nickname to his abundance of hair rather than his size—though quite impressive. He and his friends, Toine and Joe, live a happy life in Paris until, one day, Joe has a problem… An old friend from his wild days that he’d rather forget, Bébert-la-Gambille, has just got out of jail and is causing him trouble. Well, when your friend is having a hard time, what do you do? Grizzli and Toine pull out all the stops to help him by confronting the evil Bébert and assisting the tiresome detective Jean-Pierre Gourme, better known as “The Leech.” But Bébert has a few surprises up his sleeve and Grizzli isn’t out of the ring yet…
First and foremost an evocation of 1960s France—of its atmosphere, style, language—”Grizzli and Friends” is also a heartfelt homage to the literature, cinema, and writers, each of which is recalled with a tinge of nostalgia. While staying true to their major themes and means of expression: friendship, betrayal, ingenuity, mockery, slang, it serves all the ingredients of a classic French thriller!
