When Joannon had not still gone kitsch
2 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

Joannon's last works were unintentionally funny:it was a dreadful hodge podge of Saint -Sulpician images,finer feelings and religious concerns ("le Défroqué" "le Désert de Pigalle" and "Tant d'Amour Perdus" ) were peaks of kitsch.One should note he directed the last Stan and Ollie "Atoll K" (1957) But those works of the thirties and the forties were harmless pleasant stuff :"Vous N'Avez Rien A Declarer "was ahead of its time,depicting a case of impotence!"Caprices " is another rather enjoyable comedy,in spite of a desultory script;the Cinderella syndrome was better applied on Roger Richebé's "les Amants de Minuit" (1952),but Darrieux has plenty of go,and ,considering the limitations she is working under,it 's quite a feat!From a little flower lady to a sophisticated actress complete with cigarette holder to the socialite ,she runs the whole gamut.She is given strong support by aging Albert Prejean ,in his last part of a womanizer.

Best scene: the chandelier which might fall on the guests in the chic restaurant.
