Vendetta
27 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

"Adhemai" is pleasant spoof on the Corsican Vendetta ;Noel-Noel is not unlike Bourvil:he plays the naive peasant who's never got a clue what's happening around him.

Revenge ,on this paradisaic island, is a dish best eaten hot,and it's his turn.Fortunately,his "ennemy" is none other than a friend from his army days;and the police sergeant is none other than their former warrant officer.To make the matters worse,the two pals are in love with Ademai's cousin Fortunata.

This is Gilles Grangier's first effort;this director was despised by the highbrows,but his thrillers from the fifties need reassessment.

Escapist cinema,at a time the French were not smiling.
