Odyssey through Paris
3 September 2002 | by (Bochum, Germany) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie as a child. Maybe I am misguided by my memories, but I was quite impressed then of the adventures of two men who try to get back the money, they have lost in the streets of Paris. It is sort of a epical comedy, an odyssey through Paris. It adopts the rhythm of a road movie, which might appear to some as an unstructured failure, but which has a certain poetic atmosphere. It is one of the few Heinz Rühmann movies (the most important german comedian of the last century) which I really like and his teaming with famous french comedian Fernandel is really for the benefit of both. Not to forget Jean Poiret, one of those underrated actors whose company one enjoys almost without noticing the actors presence. There are many moments and scenes which are engraved in my memories. But maybe I shouldn´t try to see it again.
