Twelfth night.
13 February 2004 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

How unfair!After this delightful comedy,Marie-Claude Treilhou could not direct another movie until recently,and anyway ,that last effort is impossible to see .

Not only MC Treilhou directed this gem,but she also wrote the witty lines.She had also a dream of a cast with such luminaries as Danielle Darrieux and Micheline Presles.

There are wonderful scenes ,which take place in various locations ,including a graveyard and a Chinese restaurant but the best remains the scene when the two sisters have an argument about .... the Immaculate Conception!

Behind the humor,there's a darker side to "le jour des rois" :regrets ,fear of death,and the drag it is getting old.

It should have been one of the most celebrated French comedies of the nineties.It fell into oblivion.How unfair it is!
