"Doucement, doucement !"

It means "take it easy" as in what one would say to a horse to slow it down or calm it down. Or what you would say to a person who hit you too hard when all you needed was a gentle tap. Or what you tell someone who slams on the brakes too hard.
Literally, "doucement" comes from the adjective "doux/douce" meaning soft or gentle.
