Another Louis Jouvet's tour de force.
8 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

Some movies do not need a director at all:when Louis Jouvet is the lead,he carries everything on his shoulders.Here he's got two parts: a crook and an honest man ,who is his perfect double.Jouvet is so good,a perfectionist extraordinaire ,that you do believe there are really TWO different actors on the screen,one self-assured,smart and tricky,the other one a born-sucker.Nevertheless,best scenes are to be found at the beginning:Jouvet selling a castle on the historical register to a couple of nouveaux riches:his crook becomes a true noble ,and when he says to these bourgeois he despises "call me excellency as everybody does",his behavior compels respect.

Henri Jeanson's dialogues are as witty as ever :I wish France could ,in 2003,have someone writing as well as he did.Supporting cast includes exuberant Suzy Delair ideally cast as the gangster's moll.Delair and Jouvet were to meet again a couple of years later in Henri-Georges Clouzot's masterpiece "quai des orfèvres".

Jean Dreville is a minor director,whose best works are,outside this movie, "les affaires sont les affaires" and "la ferme du pendu".He even tackled,in the sixties an historical epic "La Fayette".
