Unknown Cuvée Grand Cru
15 May 2009 | by (Geneva, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

As a forever and a definitively Sacha Guitry fan,

eventually failing to be original in my commentary, I almost could be dithyrambical...

Once more, a SG movie brought me a lot of fun and tears of laughter !

Astonishing actor, script writer and director he was !

Spicy and sparkling flavourous dialogs, funny situation and great acting,

this "Le Nouveau Testament" is at least an unknown "Cuvée Grand Cru".

And as always, the major thing to enjoy such comedy is that you have first to like comedies, than to accept rather long dialogs.

But for me, if he could have done a thousand movies with such quality scripts, I would watch all of them... Yes, Sir !

I also guess unless you're really fluent in French speaking, and with French social and psychological background from the 30'/40's, it will be uneasy, as unfortunately usual with any translation, to understand and enjoy all the beauty and subtle of the "action".

SG was using his sharp pen for sharp spirit movies...

In fact there are only two possible ways with him :

you are a converted devotee to his church, bowing deeply to his mastering...

the one I belong to... Isn't it rather funny ? ... because in fact don't like churches :-)

or... you just don't understand... and as a consequence, you despise him !

This movie was sleeping at home since two years, and I just watched this evening... I tell you, a hidden gem !

You bet ? I just loved it !

A film is never really good unless the camera is an eyes in the head of a poet, Orson Welles
