A terrific book


The small really amusing book that will appeal to the fans of “Tontons Flingueurs” and all those who are hooked to La Cage aux Folles, Belmondo andMichel Serrault.

The title gives you a big hint: “Venantino Venatini, the last of the Tontons Flingueurs” or the autobiography of a 83-year-old actor filled with spirit and who everyone remembers in his cult role as the good looking gun bearer of Lino Ventura. But not just that…

Much more that a story of  “his life, his work”, Venantino Venatini shares his most juicy anecdotes during the short chapters, filled with humor such as “Mes nanars” where he discusses his flops,Too handsome to be the bad guy in a James Bond” or “Why I liked Louis de Funès”.

We love: the “Cage aux Folles” sequence, as though we were a little mouse backstage…
