Movies with Pierre Richard: a list of the best comedies

A Frenchman with the intricate name of Pierre Richard Maurice Charles Leopold Defeuil, who was born into a family of descendants of an old aristocratic family, broke the hopes of his relatives for a “normal” lesson when he went to Paris to study acting. Fortunately for all of his fans!

Comedies with Pierre Richard were forever included in the golden fund of favorite French (and not only) comedies for the Russian audience. Dramatic roles were rare for Richard, and this is not surprising, given how organically he fit into the role of a charming muddler, giving all his heroes an irresistible human charm.
