This is the third and final collaboration between Yves Montand and Claude Sautet. Director and star had worked very well together in Cesar et Rosalie and Vincent, Paul...; here they are doing a less-interesting script with too many characters and too many plot developments.
Montand is, as ever, very watchable; here he is a waiter in a prestigious restaurant who is trying to get financing to open an amusement park. It's fascinating to see how, when he gets flustered, he allows his slinky dancer's body to become stiff and clumsy. Nicole Garcia is the love interest, here she looks more sphinx-like than usual--what's going on inside that elegant head?
