Gentlemen prefer Blondes
1 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

Second effort by Nicolas Gessner,it continued the director's modest ambitions:pure entertaining stuff ,but entertaining !"un Milliard Dans Un Billard" was a thriller verging on parody with a lot of unexpected twists ;"La Blonde De Pekin" is some of kind of spy thriller verging on a spoof on Bond and co.

Although there's a lot of death (and a character deplores it),nobody seems to take it seriously.If you want to know why it is useful for a woman to be at once blonde and brunette ,this is the movie to choose.Giorgia Moll is so attractive as a nurse she almost outshines Mireille Darc,the star of the film ,an actress I have always found limited.It is a pity that Françoise Brion -who resembles Catherine Deneuve's sister ,the late Françoise Dorleac- only appears a few minutes.Claudio Brook is mainly remembered for his supporting part in "La Grande Vadrouille" .

Gessner had begun to use American actors as early as his first movie; E.G.Robinson was cast in this one -in a part unworthy of the actor's talent-and Gessner would later direct Bronson,Perkins,Sheen and Foster.
