Your money AND your life!
4 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

"La Bourse Et La Vie " was Mocky's first color movie and he had strong assets : a big budget (French-German production) ,writer Marcel Aymé on hand to write the dialogs ,Fernandel and French stars in the making such as Jean Poiret and Claude Piéplu.Plus a nice score.There's a sung version - heard during the cast and credits at the end- of the main theme by pop star Richard Anthony .

For all that,the movie was a monumental flop ,and Fernandel -Bourvil had recommended Mocky to him- would not hear of this director anymore.Mocky is at his best when he mixes thriller and comedy ("solo" "L'Albatros" "Le Temoin" ,etc).His art is less palatable when he tries to do exclusively comic stuff.Fernandel's fan can have a look ,this is one of his most obscure movies.
