Cute little film

I did not know this Edouard Molinaro film starring Annie Girardot and Philippe Noiret, already costarred in LA VIEILLE FILLE. Well, I will never see it again, but I won't say any harm about this little touching film. Girardot is as gorgeous as usual, so beautiful. Actually I fall each time I see her, even in the worst movies. The tale of a large family in charge of a fancy hotel in Paris, on Rivoli Street. And suddenly an English Young man arrives and he of course becomes a sort of intruder for all these folks. A charming film that deserves to be discovered again. This could have made a perfect TV movie for Saturday evening, the perfect scheme for home audiences.
