Quickly outstays its welcome
9 June 2008 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

On a Volé la Joconde/The Mona Lisa is Missing is a forgettable French period comedy from 1966 that sees George Chakiris' gentleman thief posing as a picture framer's apprentice to steal the Mona Lisa while romancing Marina Vlady, a chambermaid in a hotel where all the staff dress as the painting (luckily they don't hire men). For about half an hour it's pleasant enough despite Carlo Rustichelli's horribly over the top 'comedy' scoring (all slide whistles and trombones), but once the painting is lifted and the pair find themselves pursued through the French countryside by two thieves after the painting themselves, a couple of inept cops and a lovelorn magician as the painting passes from person to person it gets increasingly tedious with the realisation that director Michel Delville and his co-writers Nina Companeez and Ottavio Poggi think the situation is funny enough on its own not to need any jokes. They're wrong.
