Jacques Daniel-Norman 's best efforts are two detective films such as "120 Rue De La Gare" and "La Femme Que J'Ai Assassinée"."Le Briseur De Chaines is also a movie to be recommended .
"Cur Sur Mer" ,on the other hand,is a rubbishy film,in which good actors such as Jean Tissier,Jacques Charon and Pauline Carton are lost in an awful mess;intended as a musical,for the romantic male lead is crooner Andre Claveau ,this is a desultory farce in which the average viewer won't laugh once (unless the chairman's beard stuck in a vice counts).
As for the story ,if this is what you call a story,it takes place in Cur Sur Mer ,an imaginary kingdom vaguely inspired by Monaco;a prince comes to buy fabric to make dresses for a royal wedding;all the staff of the factory winds up in this sunny place where they step over girls in bathing suits to the tune of "Au Clair De la Lune".
This abysmal flick might or might not help Daniel -Norman become Tino Rossi's director for two musicals ;the first one "Son Dernier Noel" ,was not devoid of charm and was a good Xmas -movie- for- the -whole -family;the follow-up ,"Tourments" is routine melodrama.
