Not in the first flush of youth
18 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

"Dernière Jeunesse"(=final youth) for Georges (Raimu) ,an aging man whose money cannot buy him love. He meets a pretty girl (One of Guitry's favorite actresses,Jacqueline Delubac ) who claims she's cold and hungry and he falls for her;his landlord cannot tolerate a chick in a decent house so he has to move into a new apartment which looks out onto the sea ;in fact ,his mistress is not faithful and it won't be long till she falls for another guy: the younger Frosselle (Pierre Brasseur),a smug buck .Tragedy is around the corner.

In spite of the three principals,the story never really takes off:the screenplay is hackneyed and the listless directing accentuates the paucity of this story of jealousy.
