She's my cousin!
29 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

"Bécassine" was one of the first European comic strips ,although its author did not use the speech bubbles ;it began to define what is known under the "clear line" term,which spawned the whole Belgian school ,of which Tintin is the most famous work.

But the people are very divided on the character:a lot of people (particularly Bretons)have always thought that this bubble head servant was a way of laughing at Bretagne,which would have been behind the times.There's a certain charm in these comic books nonetheless,particularly when it verges on absurd.Becassine carries the orders to the letter ,and as she has her own logic,it's really funny in places.

When "Becassine" was transferred to the screen in 1940,there was an outcry in Bretagne:a real storm in a teacup,considering what was happening in France at the time.

Paulette Dubost who portrays Becassine is an estimable actress,but she is not Bécassine ;no actress could be Bécassine ,as no actor can be Tintin (S.Spielberg has understood the problem quite well) Two of the characters of the book appear in the movie: the Marquise and Uncle Corentin.The screenplay which involves jewels theft and insurance swindle is abysmal.Bécassine has a pet piggy and anyway she is not as stupid as in the books ,which is a shame :I dare you to laugh more than once or twice .
