Isn't the matrimonial agency subject interesting?As the Beatles sing "Ah look at all those lonely people?Where do they all come from?Where do they all belong?".To my knowledge,this is the only FRench movie which deals with it.
Bernard Blier is a bachelor and it is sure easy to see the reason why: an over possessive mother ;he once met a girl ,Gilberte ,but he threw it all away ...He inherits a matrimonial agency;after contemplating selling it ,he chooses to manage it.And Le Chanois does then what he does best: he creates one hundred characters ,one quality which was almost lost after the Nouvelle Vague rising.
Like Le Chanois's precedent work "Sans Laisser d' Adresse" ,"Agence Matrimoniale" is populist cinema.Not for highbrows ,but for people who like the old cinema,the one which tells stories.
