That was Robert Siodmak's first film in France where he was not reportedly warmly welcomed .After all,he was German.He worked in the country till the war broke out in 1939 just after producing his best French effort "PIèges" .
"La Crise Est Finie" is a pleasant movie,if only for its spontaneity.Albert Préjean and Danielle Darrieux are dynamic leads and make up for the rather simple plot with their enthusiasm and their good humor.
A troupe is fired because ,on stage,they did a very bad joke: they locked up the star of the show in her sedan-chair so she could not shine at all.All these boys and girls decide to put on their own show ;so they take up residence in an old theater "Elysées-Clichy" and they begin to rehearse their operetta "The crisis is over" .But they will have to frustrate their enemy,M.Bernouillin,in his plans.
