Womanizer gets his comeuppance
26 February 2002 | by (Huntington Woods, Michigan) – See all my reviews

Droll romantic comedy. Edouard is an amiable-but-self-centered concert pianist who is infatuated with women of all ages. He leads a hectic life pursuing young Muriel, while deceiving his wife Marie-France and continuing his concert tours. Ex-wife Lucienne and daughter Pom Pom are knowing onlookers. He then turns to his first love, Madame Taylor, played by the still-beautiful Danielle Darrieux, who, 43 years earlier, was worshipped by the boys, including myself, in a French class in San Diego. Beethoven's 4th Piano Concerto is the suitable theme music.
