Le Grand Jeu
4 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

A silent movie which pits an old aristocrat against a working class hero (Albert Préjean) both in love with a ballerina (Gaby Morlay).Which is quite original, for generally it was always the bourgeoisie/aristocracy antagonism which was depicted in most of the French movies of the twenties,thirties and forties.

This silent flick has a running time of two hours + and it could have been boiled down to a 90 min work without suffering from it;its pace is too slow and he plot is sometimes dull.

The best moments show the electrician ill at ease in his brand new costume ,complete with top hat and tie; the time ,the French President had not the power he enjoys today(!) and it was the ministerial musical chairs all over Paris;left/right/left/right ,it was already all the same:as soon as our hero becomes a minister,he quickly forgets his old pals always working for nothing .Jacques Feyder was pretty smart on his part.
