Unconsummated marriage
18 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

Another harmless little comedy by Richard Pottier ;not much food for thought but casting two of Clouzot's favorite actors ,Suzy Delair and Paul Meurisse was a good idea because they are totally unalike;Delair is exuberant,cheeky,full of joie de vivre.Henri Jeanson chose her to be "Lady Paname"(Paname is slang for Paris) in his unique (and unfortunately not very good)film .On the other hand,Paul Meurisse is impassive,with a deadpan sense of humor .

The story is derivative .A father (Andre Gabriello,who overplays so much he is almost unbearable)wants his son (Meurisse) to get married ,but the boy has got a mistress who is not prepared to accept it.So why not an unconsummated marriage to fool the father.No sooner said than done.But you would never guess: the rich kid falls in love with his "wife" ,a manicurist (Delair).
