What it says.
12 August 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This passable forties French short, presumably aimed at cinema first halves, has little visible connection with the work which made it's director famous. It's hard to imagine the little dog which has been trained to take up the praying position in any of Jean Pierre Melville's features.

It follows the clock round as music hall clown Beby takes off his make up, goes home for a meal, looks at photos and goes to bed to rise, spend a day in the village and perform with his new partner.

Routine production values.

Fans of the dour Melville will doubtless find something of interest.
