all that glitters....
30 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

In Broca's career,it's the follow up to "Le Farceur" with the same actor Jean-Pierre Cassel ;this time,the director has all the trumps but one : -Four brilliant actors:besides Cassel,François Périer as an archivist whose passion for history becomes a bore his wife courageously stands;Micheline Presles as a socialite with a lorgnette;and above all,a brunette Jean Seberg ,extremely beautiful,with a wonderful expressive look.The precedent user is entirely right when he wrote that she was never as attractive as in this film.

-As usual,a delightful score by Georges Delerue ,Paris waltz style.

-A remarkable black and white cinematography ,enhancing Paris and the country landscapes.

Unfortunately ,the screenplay is terribly derivative :these light-hearted banters make the movie seem like a luxurious box,as magnificent as Madeleine's desirable mansion ,but hollow.

I like De Broca's following works best:"Cartouche" "L'Homme De Rio" and his overlooked masterpiece "Le Roi De Cœur" .
