The other side of Paradise (L'envers du Paradis) where a very tender, emotional and funny Erich von Stroheim plays the make believe captain in a movie filled with deep beliefs of love. The atmosphere turns around the lives of simple people living in a little town whose lives are not as simple as it seems at first sight. Among hilarious sequences and dramatic performances the story fulfills the aim of the director, to show a place that looks beautiful but is instead the other side of paradise, where life goes on and where some people belief that true happiness is when you make happy another one. The camera cuts the scenes and this gives suspense to the story of this little place in France that could very well be "any place in the world."
