From pasta factory to porn industry
26 August 2014 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

In 1976,the movie was a good commercial success but the critics were sometimes unfair ;in "La Saison Cinématographique 1976",the (leftist) journalist wrote that Lautner did not take any chances,that he praised faithfulness and preserved the scale of social values.He added that he got bored after 30 minutes .

Hindsight displays its charms.After May 68,pornographic movies industry mushroomed and it was par excellence the kind of movie one might long ago have predicted Lautner would make .

A man working in a pasta factory writes a "serious" screenplay called "Le Miroir De L'Ame " (=Mirror of soul) in which terrorists breaks into a bourgeois house :their leader falls for the wealthy daughter ,but their love remains chaste;finally the revolutionaries win them over) A director (Pierre Richard,overtaken by events) agrees to make it but they need money ,hence a Producer;enter Morlock ,an unscrupulous porno tycoon (Jean Pierre Marielle ,at the top of his form).He asks for some changes in the screenplay and "Le Miroir De L'Ame " becomes "La Vaginale" (=the vaginal one).

There's never a dull moment ;there are furtive nudities,but no coarseness.The movie lacks finesse in its last third and its last scene is overlong and disappointing.But there are good scenes :my favorite is the screen test in which the actress is asked to read lines from Molière 's "L'Ecole Des Femmes" twice, the first time fully dressed ,and the second one stark naked :Miou-Miou shines in this sequence ,with tears in her eyes.

"On Aura Tout Vu" (= that beats everything)is no masterpiece,but the actors make it worthwhile.
