Saviorous forgotten comedy
19 May 2008 | by (Geneva, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Saviorous forgotten gem, with in the lead role our brave Fernandel !

He becomes government unemployed worker payed by the administration...

This superb comedy about the life in a southern France village, shows again his talent, as well Jean Boyer excellent script from Gabriel Chevallier's novel.

Sparkling dialogs, and very good play from all actors, with special mention to Ginette Mauban in Zozotte's role.

It really should be known by all and/or comedy/french cinema lovers...

As an enthusiastic fan of the great actor, it is a must see !

French cinema, with Fernandel, Sacha Guitry, Louis Jouvet and Raimu has eventually produced among ever best comedies between 1935-1955, and at least for me, this one belongs to those...

PS it's nice to see that there are also actual excellent ones like : Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis (2008)... and suggest, if you see it, certainly much better with subtitles than voice translated...
