Christopher Lee, top-billed on the (cheaply produced) French DVD release of this METIER DU SEIGNEUR directed by popular director Molinaro, only appears very briefly, as he usually does. Lee once expressed that it's the role that counts, as well as the quality of the film as a whole, regardless of the length of the part. An interesting point of view. He generally kept to his word, since his appearances in, among many other examples, CIRCLE OF IRON, CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY or THE GOLDEN COMPASS are more of the cameo or blink-and-you-ll-miss-it kind than proper acting displays (and I speak as a fan of Lord Lee, of whom I would like to see more on screen). This is however a very lackluster affair, resembling a lot of made-for-TV movies/mini-series of its time (the mid-eighties), devoid of interest other than watching a few well-known and otherwise good actors like Pierre Arditi getting the job done before they went on to starring in bigger and better works. Boring, I'm afraid.
