Deux De Chez Nous
2 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

Sacha Guitry had made his first movie in 1915 ,then dedicated himself to stage only ,as a writer,director and director.It was 1935 before he made another movie "Pasteur" and this one released the same year.

A collaboration with Fernand Rivers (who also worked with Gance),"Bonne Chance" displays Guitry's touch,particularly in the beginning with this humor verging on absurd in the scenes of the pose and the hairdresser.Puns,jokes and even reductio ad absurdum that what is immoral is moral and vice versa.Good lines such as "He's your brother? but he doesn't resemble you" "We don't have the same father!" "Ah!I see.."And not the same mother either!"

A girl (Jacqueline Delubac,Guitry's then-wife) who got engaged to a boy who is leaving for military training (thirteen days) wins two million on the raffle ,thanks to an older man (Guitry)who she calls her good luck charm (hence the title:good luck!).While the fiancé is away ,he takes her to a honeymoon before the wedding ,spending a lot of money on caviar,Renoir paintings,castles and other trivia.
