Candid and thoroughly hilarious
13 December 2014 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

A sadly underseen must-see; a highly enjoyable comedy about an intellectual but disgruntled chauvinist and a voluptuous airhead who meet through a dating ad. As their date progresses and they try to make a good impression on each other – and, naturally, fail laughably at that – the characters motives and expectations are understood to be mostly opportunistic and selfish, and their manners deceitful. Yet despite the mean-spirited tone of the piece, their redeeming qualities eventually come through, although the ending, even if fairly compassionate, seems a bit out of place in a movie that spends the whole time asking us to laugh at its not-so-lovable losers. But one can easily forgive that and instead appreciate the fact that despite being now half a century old, the movie remains quite fresh and modern, not just in the straightforward way it depicts the characters and their society, at the time, but most surprisingly in how cleverly thought-out some of the jokes are – on the other hand the most outrageous moments, including Périer kicking a tortoise or making blatantly racist remarks, may feel even edgier today than they were back then.

François Périer and especially Sandra Milo, looking as beautiful as ever, even under layers and layers of make-up that make her look like Gelsomina, are both excellent in their roles. Writers include Ruggero Maccari and Ettore Scola.
