          Good one, Maximilien. But he did create some amazing characters:
          Vatel, Martin Guerre, Rodin (Camille Claudel).

            Here is how he is described on a French web site:

            Gérard Depardieu est un acteur français aimant le bon vin, et même le mauvais, une fois que le bon est fini.

                Oh my. Looks like Maximilien is on to something.
