She falls in love with yet another man, this time a handsome compatriot, Michel Lafaurie, an honest reporter-photographer. Her love is true but destiny is rampaging its way through the wintry alleys of Venice... Written by Guy Bellinger

the picturing does it
6 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

'Sait-on jamais' (= French for 'one never knows') is a typical Vadim-film: a nice picturing supports the public mood of its times -- while containing a pretty meagre plot.

As the public mood of 1957 is beyond memory for most of us, the nice picturing of Venice at the times is all that's left to us. Unfortunately, that's not enough.

the barely adequate quality of 'Sait-on jamais' is also illustrated by the necessary support of Arnoul's nakedness. Daring to the standards of 1957.

All in all, 'Sait-on jamais' is a film you do not want to see twice.
