The Corsican File (French: L'Enquête Corse, lit. 'The Corsican investigation') is a 2004 French comedy film directed by Alain Berbérian. It is based on the comic book of the same name, one of the stories from the Jack Palmer series by René Pétillon.[1]

The film is produced by Gaumont and Legend, and written by Christian Clavier and Michel Delgado.[1] The story follows the escapades of private investigator Jack Palmer, a pseudonym of Rémi Francois, trying to locate a man living on the island of Corsica who is to inherit a property from a will.



Nicolas Jouenne of Le Figaro said, "And you must admit that the two actors stick to their characters perfectly! Although he has not adopted the unmistakable look of Jack Palmer, Christian Clavier is shown in a relatively convincing interpretation while retaining far from his usual bidding a bit boring. Facing him, Jean Reno turns out perfect in solitary independence leader and blood, in addition to the Corsican accent!"[2]
