1929 crisis becomes an operetta
8 August 2006 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

That was Robert Siodmak's first film in France where he was not reportedly warmly welcomed .After all,he was German.He worked in the country till the war broke out in 1939 just after producing his best French effort "PIèges" .

"La Crise Est Finie" is a pleasant movie,if only for its spontaneity.Albert Préjean and Danielle Darrieux are dynamic leads and make up for the rather simple plot with their enthusiasm and their good humor.
