La Comtesse Arlésienne.
7 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

The photographs in the cast and credits set the tone.Not only the heroes of the film live on the fringes of society ,but for them the world stood still .They live in their dream .

The captain (Galabru) claims he was a brave firebrand who covered himself with glory in many a war.Actually ,he was in charge of the military outfit ,in an obscure barrack.

Camadule (Carmet) is always talking of a countess ,a relative of his,a woman his pals imagine as a Grande Dame but they never see .She is what the French call "Arlésienne" ,a person who,although much talked about ,never materializes.Like the captain ,he has a tendency to embroider the truth .

Kamel is a young Arab ,full of good humor ,though he 's not spared racism: he is fired just because he answered Camadule who asked him the time;and there's that cafe where "aliens are not served".Whatever the situation ,he always repeats :"it's not my fault".

Based on a René Fallet's novel,this is essentially a road movie in which the eccentric threesome (with a cock in tow)uses their feet, coaches,a rep for ties ' beautiful car , and even the police van .Even if their quest is derisory,they reach their promised land and the imaginary castle where the countess is supposed to live.

The screenplay is uneven ,but it features a few good lines and memorable scenes (if the one when Kamel is stuck under the car fizzles out,Camadule playing the occasional schoolteacher for Kamel in a cell is worth the price of admission.)
