Louis de Funès,
just nice. for cast. for clothes and atmosphere. for solutions of adaptation. for charm. but , after its end, it remains only nice. slice of a period art, French at all, almost a Gauthier, it is the kind of innocent delight film. not serious or profound,convincing or extraordinary, wise or full of nuances. only a game , crumbs of literature, good actors acting for pure joy and a director for who measure is basic rule. nothing more. but it is enough ! because the film remains fresh and the performance touching. because it is only joke. and good occasion to remember not only the silhouettes of great names of French art but a dusty novel of an old age.
