A certain feeling and that definitive smile, Guitry's trademark !
5 May 2008 | by (Geneva, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Quoting the only other comment, I for sure agree with that certain feeling about Guitry's movies...

and just would add and mention that this one also has that definitive smile in it,

the trademark of that great director and actor who was Sacha Guitry.

May be slightly too talky, but it's an effective pleasure,

French subtle language is always so well expressed,

that all along it's keeps you smiling...

None of his best work, but nevertheless, even not though,

what could be considered as a minor Guitry's movie,

is quiet above most directors average...

a small minor treasure !
