There are two kinds of men...
6 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

...some are fickle .....

And he IS fickle ! We will never know how the men of the second kind are ..

"Aventure A Paris" is a pleasant little comedy ,partly a musical;Jules plays the trumpet in his landlord's car ,performing one of the big hits of the era "Tout Va Très Bien Madame La Marquise" ;there's a stage performance ,with a topless girl -nudity was no problem for Marc Allégret who showed a topless blonde in her bed three years before in "Lac Aux Dames " -singing "Laissez Vous Faire" (C'est Un Corsaire)(=go on ,be a devil!/he's a corsair) ,with a reprise for the finale.Besides there are snippets of a hilarious song which goes like this: "celery,it ain't ,no it ain't ,spaghetti!"

A wealthy businessman who made his fortune in biscuits and wafers has a problem with women.A lady killer (Jules Berry) who is also his tenant short of the readies whose goods are to be seized wants to help him with his problem.His plan: he seduces a woman ,invites her to dine ;then he introduces her to his shy friend;then a phone call forces him to leave them alone together.Unfortunately things do not happen as expected ..

Arletty is a long time coming ,since she only appears in the last third.But when she appears ,she steals every scene she is in;and it's a joy to see her play opposite Jules Berry (greater collaborations would follow with "Le Jour Se Lève" and "Les Visiteurs Du Soir" ).
