Ship of pools
10 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

The luxury liner "Normandie" is to sail across the Atlantic ocean .Destination New York.And I mean luxury:they have a nice swimming-pool I'd love to dive in.

The passengers:the who's who of the French cinema of the forties:Gaby Morlay,Michel Simon,Claude Dauphin,Jules Berry....Like in the disaster movies ,there are many subplots most of them independent.The difference is that there is NO disaster ;do not expect a wreckage:the "Normandie" is not another "Titanic" .

Some of the subplots:

1)A detective (Simon) is in charge of an invaluable diamond ;well,diamonds may be a girl's best friend,but this precious stone story is not the best thing in the movie.Disappointing ending .

2)A man travels with his missus and his secretary who is also his mistress.Against all odds ,the two women become good friends.A menage à Trois well before Truffaut's "Jules and Jim".

3)A poor journalist wants to meet again a girl he 's known in France.But he discovers she is a rich girl and the papa says no to the union .One evening ,dad disappears.What do you suppose that means?Unlike the diamond stuff,the ending of this plot is a bit unexpected and makes sense.

What the movie lacks is unity and a great writer.One can only wonder what Julien Duvivier and Henri Jeanson would have done with this subject.
