User Reviews

 
the only known comedy by Clouzot

Like Hitchcock who directed one comedy in Usa, Clouzot directed that boulevard with an exceptional casting : Jouvet, Bourvil, volcanic Danièle Delorme, ... and the always exceptionaly funny Saturnin Fabre, who has a part all through the movie and at his best. Miquette ... is very pleasant and fast paced, Clouzot could only succeed with this brilliant casting. I know from local villagers that the atmosphere on "les Diaboliques" shooting was tragic, but on Miquette..., Clouzot was happy and smiling (written on local newspapers with pictures), so yes Miquette... is an exception in his filmography. Not to be missed for that poker of actors, and I say it again, Saturnin Fabre.
