Thou shalt not steal....
20 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

The screenwriters should have had a look at the Bible :the seventh commandment reads : "thou shalt not commit adultery ";their movie actually deals with the eighth one:Thou shalt not steal....

It's the remake of Raymond Bernard's own "J'Etais Une Aventurière" ,Edwige Feuillère reprising her part of an adventuress .

A false Russian princess (thanks to the 1917 revolution,many crooks pass themselves off as part of the Russian aristocracy ),helped by two henchmen ,seduces wealthy men to divest them of their precious jewels ;some day she falls in love with one of her victims ,but her accomplices are not prepared to accept it....

This is a very entertaining comedy:never a dull moment ,no filler ,with a majestic Edwige Feuillère and an excellent cast:Jacques Dumesnil and Jacques Morel ,as two clumsy robbers,Jean Lefèvre as auntie Emilie's grown up kid;Micheline Dax' s short appearance as Feuillère's replacement is riotously funny.

Raymond Bernard's follow-up to "Les Fruits De L'Ete" which also featured Feuillère, "Le Septième Commandement" was followed with another "Septième" (seventh), "Le Septième Ciel",his swansong and another successful comedy full of black humor,featuring Danielle Darrieux.

NB In a way ,this movie also advertises Verigoud (sic) soda,as the threesome enjoys a refreshment with a big poster behind them;this beverage which left you with yellow or orange lips (depending on your choice:lemon or orange)is still reportedly selling in Algeria where it was invented.
