The impostor
2 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

Henry Decoin cast again his then-wife Danielle Darrieux as the lead of a pretty good melodrama;an orphan ,Darrieux follows her best friend's not so good piece of advice:pretending to be a wealthy writer's natural child.There is some excuse:her grandmother passed away and she couldn't pay the rent anymore and continue her law studies ;besides ,every time she thinks she's got a job,the macho men want to abuse her! The Cinderella syndrome was much better applied on "Premier rendez-vous" where Darrieux played an orphan again.But Darrieux's charm is irresistible -to think that she's still working,in 2007!-.

Best scenes:

Darrieux's "father"'s wife gets a phone call,while the girl is in the room;someone is talking about a person who would have deceived these rich bourgeois.Has the imposture been revealed?

Darrieux's first defense speech.In fact ,while she is defending an accused ,she's speaking of herself:Darrieux injects more real emotion in her words that you might think possible.
