whirling you around in a bright way
31 August 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Elle boit pas ......!' is another of those light comedies for which the French are so famous. With Annie Girardot acting as its engine, it whirls you into an increasing complexity of human affairs that almost defies logic.

Set & made in 1970, this film completely breathes the style, the mood, the spirit and the speed of its days. Revoking memories to those who were around at the time. Probably looking ajar and old fashioned to those who weren't.

There also must be praise for this film's picturing, aggressively adding extra value to its plot. Making the bright coloring of 1970 even more flamboyant.
