Arletty's very last part...
17 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

...before she became almost blind and gave up acting.And she had not played opposite to Fernandel since "Fric Frac" (1939).

"Le Voyage à Biarritz " is not a great swansong for an actress who was featured in the all-time masterpiece of the FRench cinema "Les Enfants du Paradis"! But it is pleasant entertaining harmless stuff.Fernandel,as endearing as ever ,plays a station master (in a station where trains do not stop anymore ).He is proud of his son who's just passed his engineer degree (in London at that)and he tells it to all the world.But the young man does things with a posh English family (beware of marmelade!English put sleeping pills in it to take you to the church where you get married before you have time to catch your breath!)

Fernandel's dream has always been ,when his son has got his diploma,to make a trip to Biarritz and to stay in a chic hotel where his friend,the restaurant owner(Arletty) spent some time when she was young.THere is just a problem:now that the boy is educated ,he is ashamed of his parents and does not know where he stands anymore.

Almost a surrealistic title,"Le Voyage A Biarritz" will appeal to Fernandel's numerous fans.
