The Ultimate Comedy About The Life Of The Actor
20 October 2007 | by tonstant viewerSee all my reviews

It is a crime that this film is not available on DVD. It should be required viewing for anyone considering becoming an actor.

This comedy is painfully acute on the subject of the million humiliations a working actor must face. Marcello Mastroianni and Jean Rochefort are both superb in playing second-raters who will never achieve stardom, and who scramble desperately to hold their lives together in the precarious world of showbiz.

Neil Simon's "The Goodbye Girl" has dated badly, but "Salut l'artiste" remains as pointed and relevant today as when it was released. This is a much better film.

Now for that DVD......
