French don't use showers, do they?
31 March 2003 | by (Gijón, Asturies, Spain) – See all my reviews

This movie is a superb comedy from the same director of Casque d'or and Le trou. A close friend of Howard Hawks, who helped François Truffaut when interviewing Mr. Hawks for Cahiers du cinèma. A woman notices that her husband has a lover and she decides to leave the house and rents a little room in rue de l'estrapade (estrapade street). The husband tries to get her back but she keeps on her convictions. She looks for a job in a prèt-a-porter shop and she even flirts with another man...but they're still deeply in love with each other. The one line summary is because when the wife rents, the landlord shows her a sort of back-packer and there is no bathroom...so as we used to think about French people, they don't use showers, do they?
