Storyline

After the rejection of their latest - and preposterous - scenario, two script writers get back to basics to prepare a new movie. The new scenario centers on Henriette, a pretty, lively Parisian, and how she spends the 14th of July in Paris with her fiancé. We follow the tribulations of Henriette as various other characters make their entry in the story and turn a traditional festive day into something more adventurous than expected.

User Reviews

A spirited and ingenious comedy that bobs merrily between romance and farce.
12 June 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

One of my favorite Duvivier movies, "Henriette" is impishly clever in both writing and direction. The spoofing of various movie conventions will delight fans. But it's not only the satire that pleases, "Henriette" emerges as a most charming piece as well.

Dany Robin makes an entrancing heroine, while glamorous Hildegarde Neff has a right royal time as the exotic Rita. In the role of an adroitly-invented thief, Michel Auclair is also a stand-out.
