This chocolate mousse is not a gourmet dish.
25 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

In the early thirties,many French movies were filmed plays ;such is the case with "La Petite Chocolatière" .

It has not worn well;the main female character ,a spoiled rich girl,is almost unbearable and her reluctant suitor the young civil servant is not much better: Pierre Bertin 's acting is wooden.The only reason to Watch these light-hearted gallantries is Raimu ,but it's not one of his best parts,by a long shot;also interesting is the presence ,in a supporting role,of Simone Simon,the future star of Renoir's "La Bete Humaine" and of Jacques Tourneur's "cat people".

One can save a funny scene :the father of the Young man's first fiancée,coming into the boy's country house and discovering two girls ,quickly says to his daughter:" do not enter this place,dearest,there's a lovely landscape outside".

Remade in 1949,by André Berthomieu.
