Jacques Brel and Emmanuelle Riva are nicely directed by André Cayatte
8 September 2008 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

Les Risques du Métier is a neglected classic of French cinema.Before this film was released no one had any idea about the risks which are usually associated with a job.There are not so many people who would consider that an innocent school teacher would be harassed by villagers for no fault of his own.It is one of those rare films which needs to be resuscitated so that today's young generation can profit by having a glimpse of famous french singer Jacques Brel.A film like this one needs to have a better distribution so that both the victim as well as the violator can get a chance to look at their tumultuous relationship.It is for this film that veteran French film director André Cayatte has decided to cast shadow on the taboo topic of child rape and its implications on society.Jacques Brel is absolutely marvelous as a school professor who is falsely accused of rape.There are no so many films that capture the wickedness of small children. This is a film which not only shows these small wimps but also describes in detail the behavior of small people in a country village.
