la fin d'un genre
21 June 2005 | by TranDucMinhSee all my reviews

It's supposed to be witty but it is often languishing. It's meant to be funny but it's often thick.

Only a few dialogs can vaguely salvage this Turkey, a few lines by some seriously good actors; Bernard Blier is excellent, Jean Yann and Mireille Darc as well.

This movie is the end of a line born in the 50's, a line which had its days and its myths, a line which went into decadence in the 70's, with movies like this one. Mobsters are no longer funny, witty and amusing, the spoofs of "films noirs" became boring before they disappeared. This is the end of a world...
