"Chateau De Reve " is a pleasant harmless comedy which some might want to catch ,because of two names :Danielle Darrieux,who beats everyone in terms of longevity ,for she is still working,in 2012!and Henri-Georges Clouzot ,who wrote the dialogs,although it is hard to find his touch in it.It's some kind of operetta,even if nobody sings or dance (there's only one song).
A director and his actors are filming by the seaside;they lack extras ,so they hire the crew of a ship,and even an officer in a more important part,that of a prince who rescues (in the script) a female spy.
After the film,the "prince" acts as though he is a genuine prince and his co-star claims she is a marchioness;the village give them a warm welcome and they are invited in the chic circles of aristocracy in a château where his "highness" meets the baron's daughter (Darrieux) he falls in love with.The star/"marchioness" warns her:"he is playing a part,do not be fooled" and the young baroness is confused.
But much to their surprise..........
