Ms Lvowski is well known only to her friends, who wrote apologetic reviews of her last movie in LE MONDE or NOUVEL OBS, but may be hardly located somewhere between Lubitsch and Minnelli.However, she had a rather good script, six fantastic actors and even a cartoonist who designed for her some funny cartoons, including an assassination of Hitler - nothing less. The trouble with this movie is that it is a mixture of good acting and hasty editing, probably due to the fact that money was scarce and after paying the main cast, there was little left for a careful editing. There are some sequences which are funny, all the actors are doing their best, with special notations for Azema and Marielle, but some sequences - such as the delivery of Ms. Bruni-Tedeschi (an awful name to spell for ordinary French people)'s baby, are beyond the limits of the widest patience. The reviewer of PARISCOPE who qualified this film as "light as a Fred Astaire movie" and Bulle Ogier's Alzheimer as "infantile" should be condemned for imbecility. Ms Lvovsky is to appear in a next-to-come movie. I am not anxious to see it.harry carasso, Paris, France
