Heartbreak hotel
17 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

"Le Dindon" is based on the eponymous Georges Feydeau's play ,pure Théâtre De Boulevard .

A womanizer tries to seduce a woman who swears she will never cheat on her husband as long as he is faithful to her.And it is only the beginning of "investigations" ,some of them involving the police,to find who cheats on who (the seducer's and the respectable wife's spouses have also problems with their hidden affairs .

The best part takes place in hotel whose manager is none other than the famous Louis De Funès.In this place everybody tries to catch the others on the act;but many cases of mistaken identities occur,including one with a M.O. and his deaf wife ,Coco,who would enjoy ballets more if there were music (Louis Ségnier and Jeanne Marken);the sequence of the ringing is hilarious.

The director,Claude Barma,would work for TV later on,and greater glories were shortly to follow,with his outstanding miniseries "Belphégor" .
