excellent acting, even not so funny sketches
27 March 2007 | by (Geneva, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

The acting, of Raimu and Fernandel as well as all other comedians', is the strong point for this little sketches movie. Perhaps not as exceptional as usual, but in my opinion, the reason comes from the theme : Les Petits Riens... That literally means : the small nothing. Other interesting point, a way of thinking and living, disappeared long time ago... Anyway we're far from Kill Bill and such rubbish, fortunately! So, if you like B & W, with real comedians, even with some rather weak plots, I guess you will enjoy "these small nothing". I also suggest you, if not yet known from you, to (must) see "Ces Messieurs de la Santé", with Raimu, or "Fric-Frac", with Fernandel to appreciate some of their best acting abilities, among others comedies.
