Good intentions...

...can produce masterpieces,as Frank Capra showed in the past.

"Toute La Ville Accuse" (the title is a misnomer) is a return to what Christian -Jaque and Pierre Very used to do in the thirties /forties:the poetic detective story involving children and (apparently ) irrational things.

A writer short of the readies finds a bag of money every morning in his house;he's got a big heart and he uses his money to help his fellow man.

There's a good chemistry between Jean Marais and the brats ,and Noel Roquevert is featured in the only memorable scene in the movie where he delivers lines which are still relevant today (and today more than ever)-"Politicians should stick to promises ;when promises are fulfilled ,that's not playing fair"- For all that,Claude Boissol cannot make his Jaque/Very cum Capra movie interesting.Most of the time ,it's never really exciting.
