Leonard Keigel's first two movies ("Leviathan" and his version of "La Dame De Pique " have a honest reputation but they are nowhere to be seen.

We are left with his ridiculous sub-"Diaboliques" thriller "Qui?" which was panned when it was released .His wife ,Simone Bach ,played a supporting part in it.

For his comeback (and last movie)"Une femme, Un Jour" ,S.Bach wrote the screenplay which might have seemed risqué for the time:it tells the story of a woman ,Caroline (the excellent Caroline Cellier in a dull part )whose marriage is on the rocks and who lives in her friend's house :this friend,NIcky, is a lesbian and she is in love with the divorcée.

The problem with the movie is that those characters are much too superficial;the two women go to the pictures to see "the wizard of oz" (isn't she a friend of Dorothy ,after all?),then to a lesbian night club .Little by little,Caroline seems attracted by Nicky but she feels guilty (the father tries to buy her back-to-straight sex with a six -figure check;although she refuses ,the girls thinks that what she does is not "normal" .An involuntary funny scene shows Caroline's brat surprising the two women ,naked in bed ,making love; "what are you doing? " asks the innocent boy.And all in all,the screenplay goes contrary to what could be expected: the pictures of the trip to Morocco ,with Caroline happy again with hubby and son is the triumph of the bourgeois moral. And Nicky herself gives men a try again,but her choice of a crude brute is not a good one.Go fish!
