It's In The Bag
2 February 2009 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This was the first of several collaborations between Jacques Prevert and his kid brother Pierre. Prevert senior wrote two other screenplays that same year but it was junior's first At Bat. For a four and a half reeler it's quite tasty albeit weighed down by a hackneyed plot - the one where all the guys want to marry the girl with the dowry - but Prevert's linguistic touch is well in evidence and he can even be seen in a matelot-type striped jersey playing the flute. Julien Carrette is also on hand and that is always a good sign. The majority of the cast were and remain relatively unknown - Sound was still a new concept in French cinema and actors were selected as much for how they sounded as for acting ability - but the film is definitely more than a curio.
