Where's David?
9 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

This two-bit melodrama boasts a biblical title .But it does not delude for long.The connection with David,Bathsheba (Bethsabée)and her unfortunate husband Urie remains vague and flimsy.

A woman with a racy past ,Arabella, (Darrieux) comes to Africa to meet her fiancé (Georges Marshall),an officer .What a coincidence,among the military,there's a strange man (Paul Meurisse) who seems to know a lot of very bad things about Arabella.And guess what?The colonel's daughter is in love with this man and with Arabella it's hate at first sight.This hackneyed,old-fashioned and trite story is enhanced ,so to speak,by a bombastic, syrupy score.All the natives (Arabs) are servants or privates at best ,under white heroes'command.

Leonide Moguy 's directing-a now forgotten name- is abysmal .Three good actors are totally wasted .Adapted from a Pierre Benoit's book,whose most famous book remains "l'Atlantide".I haven't read this one,but it must be close to romance magazines stuff.Good for a laugh.Barely.
