Farce outstays its welcome
7 May 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is a fairly frenetic farce which stars the marvellous Peter Ustinov.In this film each of the countries fighting in the desert occupies the hotel in turn and brings with it their own nationalistic quirks.There are some funny moments but unfortunately at 96 minutes it is just to long.Certainly by the time the French take over you are just wishing for it to come to a quick conclusion.The cast is first rate and does the best they can with the somewhat limited material.Ustinov is funny as the hotel proprietor.It was truly the world,s loss when he died .He was a uniquely gifted personality and there are not a lot of those around.
