Marc Allégret's last works....
21 February 2007 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

.... were derivative stuff .But they did have wonderful casts: this is the only film where you can see Danielle Darrieux and Arletty together:two legends of the French cinema .Plus Bourvil and Jean-Paul Belmondo who would team up again ten years later for "le Cerveau" (1969).

After "Blanche Fury" ,Allégret did not make a single truly interesting movie."Un drôle de dimanche" hesitates between comedy and drama.There are some funny moments (notably when Bourvil pretends to be the boss to regain his ex-wife's love; the commercial with all the women crying ) but as a drama it does not really work.The three flashbacks are a waste of film ,the Bourvil/Darrieux encounter is laborious,the final chase is repetitive.

The reason why you would watch this is,I say it again,the cast.Arletty as a dramatic art teacher,what a good idea!The sequence is unfortunately too short.
