1850's comedy
25 September 2006 | by AmadouxSee all my reviews

The only interest of this movie lies in its stylish dialogs. Besides that, we get a basic set up and a simple game play that could work on a theater stage. Léon Bernard precedes Louis De Funes in making faces, pushing the film into a way that could have been cultivated slightly better. This turns him into the most interesting character of the story, making us wait the next burst of anger he'll have with his son-in-law, wasting his money to conserve a certain quality of life. The issues of love and money are too sappy and superficial ; probably a drawback of this kind of comedy. The drama plot is built too obviously to make this film a good vintage entertainment, despite of a few interesting scenes.
