Fortunately in the wrong movie
19 June 2014 | by Tobias-NeweSee all my reviews

Due to a confusion and against my expectation to see a Wes Anderson movie, I found myself in a french comedy of 1933. Because this isn't one of my favorite genres at all the rating can't be much higher than 6 stars. Nevertheless I don't regret my mistake. The movie wasn't able to convince me of its idyllic world story about an apartment building where the most dramatic incidents are a poorly faked suicide and a foreseeable and completely irrelevant mistaken identity. But it was able to satisfy me with its cinematographic aspects. Except some focus problems it is technically flawless and comes up with some really good shots and dolly scenes, although the camera could have been a bit more dynamic for my liking. Unintentionally "Du haut en bas" was my first G.W. Pabst movie, but it won't be the last.
