The immortals let themselves be tempted.
16 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

God sends a guardian angel (in the shape of a gorgeous blond woman played by Simone Renant) to protect His flock.But Satan has the same idea and he has His devil (François Perier) sign contracts with the human beings to gain their soul.

Jean Stelli is a director who made his name through tearjerkers ,the likes of "Le Voile Bleu" ,most of them have not aged well."La Tentation De Barbizon" is a different matter because it is a comedy and the two leads (along with Daniel Gelin as the potential sinner) make it a minor winner.

The two enemies "work" with a young couple ;the devil tries ,by tempting the husband , to destroy their love whilst the angel tries his best to keep them together .But nothing happens as expected and the devil concludes :"the way things are going ,I'm going to wind up in Heaven and you in Hell".

This can be seen as a light version of Carné's masterpiece "Les Visiteurs Du Soir" (1942)transposed to the forties and it proves that ,all in all,mortals are stronger than diabolic or divine interventions.
