Charming French Farce
4 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a delight from start to finish. The lead is one of France's greatest actors who has made many films and who is as delightful as ever. In fact, the entire cast is just wonderful. The story is classic farce in the Noel Coward tradition with sharp and funny dialogue and delightful characters. Even the bad guys in this film are likable. Astonishingly, there is not even a moment of sex which for a French film is really something. But you never miss it, the story is going so fast and the twists and turns never stop. Everything about the film is first rate. There is not a sour note in the entire story. The script is an absolute gem and the actors take advantage of every nuance.
