Gifted comic actor Darry Cowl plays the title role in Le Triporteur (The Tricyclist). A football fanatic, young Antoine (Cowl) follows his favorite team from one game to the next madly peddling his tricycle to his various destinations. Antoine is later needed to "suit up" during a crucial game and join his pet team on the playing field. And though it hardly seems possible, a pretty girl (BĂ©atrice Altariba) falls in love with our feckless hero. Le Triporteur is the sort of film that Jerry Lewis might have put together in the early '60s. Perhaps Lewis' cult status in France is due to his stylistic resemblance to Darry Cowl.
