The big man and the little girl
10 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

"Raimu taught me everything!" Michele Morgan said after working with him for "Gribouille" This is an endearing obsolete movie ,which retains a certain charm.It features roughly two parts: Michele Morgan stands trial:she has killed (by accident) her lover, a rich kid whose father wants to avenge.The judge and the jurors seem to have a thing about this "bad " girl whose dad was a deserter and who has already had four lovers.But one of the jurors makes the jury change their mind as new evidences are found:Raimu,predating Henry Fonda in Lumet's work, helps save the defendant from the "eleven angry men".

Morgan is released ,but she cannot find a job.So the ex-juror ,who owns a cycle shop ,hires her but his family will ignore who she really is.Of course Raimu's son (Gilbert Gil ) falls in love with the girl but his soon-to-be brother-in-law has nastier plans about her.

Two short appearances by Bernard Blier who ,with his girlfriend ,would like to swap their bicycles for a tandem and later vice versa.

A fine Christmas night sequence complete with midnight mass and "Gloria in excelsis Deo" .

"Gribouille" , a gentle nickname the missus gives to her hubby is only heard in the last lines.

Very charming.
