Jean-Pierre Mocky films a very funny parishioner., 19 September 2014
Author: FilmCriticLalitRao from Paris, France

French director Jean-Pierre Mocky is famous for his poignant yet subtle attacks on church and established religion.What makes his films interesting is the fact that they always have a lot of comedy in them.The same trend is visible in "Un Drôle De Paroissien" which shows how some churches in Paris have become a source of income for people who do not want to work ? One can simply marvel at some bold church thieves and their ingenuous pilfering techniques. The film is highly original as before Monsieur Mocky nobody had thought of showing bad days of French aristocracy.Great French comedian Bourvil is remarkable as a member of an aristocratic family who feels that working like commoners would diminish their status.The portrayal of incompetent policemen also helps to add comical touches to the film.In a world where everybody wants to work no matter how good or bad the job might be,this film by Jean-Pierre Mocky is a good example for knowing more about people who don't want to work. Lastly,this black comedy should not be missed by anybody who is interested in watching an issue based comedy film.
