You don't change a winning team...
10 December 2004 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

...that's why ,the year after "Quai des Brumes" ,one of Marcel Carné's best films ,here they are again:Jean Gabin and Michele Morgan .The movie was recently broadcast on the French TV and it's a big disappointment,particularly coming from a scenarist like Charles Spaak.

First of all,the action takes place in a chocolate box Australia (they tell us it happens in Australia,we would never guess).Gabin has killed a man,and of course he did not mean to do such as a thing.So ,he 's got to sail away to the islands in the sun (a permanent feature in the thirties French cinema).Morgan ,who appears only in the second half ,committed a murder too.A policeman is hot on their heels.And to crown it all, there's an influenza epidemic.Enough is enough!There are more holes in the plot than in Swiss cheese.

Gabin and Morgan were to make a third movie together,and that last one was successful: "Remorques" by Jean Gremillon,a few years later.
