Quotes

Victor Chandebisse: My ingenious friend suggests that this young innocent girl relied as a murder weapon solely on a large plateful of snails. Members of the jury, would you believe that a true daughter of France could ruin the flavour of one of our great, national dishes by so much as a grain of Arsenic?

An irritating flea.
26 October 2019 | by brogmillerSee all my reviews

I really wish that I could say something positive about this film.Despite a stellar cast and directed by Jacques Charon who, as a luminary of the Comedie Francaise should, one assume, have been steeped in the tradition of French farce, this effort is truly lamentable. An acute source of embarassment to all concerned. Its sheer awfulness defies belief. I beg you all to forget this travesty and see 'Occupe-toi d'Amelie' of Claude Autant-Lara to appreciate how Feydeau should be done.
