Popular Mocky for good reason
5 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

Here's one of Mocky stabs at religion and a good one too! Not that it's the first time he tackles the subject (remember Un Drôle de Paroissien in the 1960's) but this time he's really angry about it. His target: Lourdes and all the business and the money that's made out of people's credulity; the "religion shops" where you can buy plastic Jesuses and Holy Marys... He's greatly helped by a duo of actors on top of their game: Jean Poirte and Michel Serrault, both of which have made numerous other films with this director. And Jeanne Moreau, in one of her rare outrageous comedy roles. Very spiky dialogues, the usual Mocky freewheeling liberating feel about it all, and you get one of his most coherent and enjoyable films. One not to miss, and which (delightfully) shocked me as a kid...
