Set against the backdrop of the Nazi occupation of France, VICE AND VIRTURE is a stylized retelling of the Marquis de Sade's Justine, as envisioned by one of cinema's most provocative filmmakers Roger Vadim.
This one is a strong contender.It was based on a comic strip which everyone has forgotten today.I've never read it,but if it is as subtle as the film,I do not miss an awful lot.The main reason for which this flick is sought is Louis de Funes 's presence:he portrays a violin teacher with a very long beard (which predates Rabbi Jacob?).
The rest consists of grotesque gags ,lines for mentally retarded persons ,vulgar jokes .I dare you to watch this dud till the end.I called it quits halfway through.
This is the only feature film by Marcel Gibaud whose shorts,they say,are interesting.
