Franco goes burlesque with success

Author: Pierre-Alexandre Buisson ( from Montreal, Quebec, Canada
26 December 2000

What a strange piece of film. Part of Franco's short-lived collaboration with french producer Robert de Nesle, the Comptoir Français du Film's boss, this comedic gem is about a bored count who likes to hunt down pretty women, disguised as a servant. A lot of misadventures happen to him, and the one-liners fall like a golden rain, revealing once more how much Jesus Franco is a talented dialoguist. Olivier Mathot plays a moustached bandit, and Lina Romay is, as always, the seductress. Lots of weird situations, dumb softcore sex scenes, and no particular linear narrative line. Fred Williams is the perfect gentleman here, being "L'Homme le Plus Sexy du Monde" (the world's sexiest man) with a certain class. If you usually don't like Franco and his disturbing subjects, here comes the light touch he can also put in his comedies, because this one's hard not to like.

One of Franco's worst

Author: Lars Jacobsson ( from Sweden
17 April 2009

Terrible sex comedy by Franco. A young lord gets turned off by his porno industry girlfriend and her all too technical sex life and starts posing as a butler to sleep with girls. Or something, my french is not up to date. Lots of lame jokes, people hiding in closets and boredom follows. Only for Francophiles, the only fun I got out of it was spotting some familiar Franco faces like the awesome fatman who played the merry mayor in Loveletters of a Portugese Nun, and some filming-out-of-the-carwindow footage from Paris notorious sex district (is it the one called Pigalle?), a film poster of the (much funnier) Franco film Les Ebranleés is spotted and all. Imagine seeing that whacked-out flick in a real movie house!
