Faux pas.
22 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is ,among Clouzot's relatively small filmography (11 movies) ,the most disappointing effort.There's nothing from his magic touch here.Reigning supreme over French suspense movies ("le corbeau" "diaboliques" "le salaire de la peur"),his art becomes ineffective when it comes to bittersweet albeit bland comedies like this one.The good cast (Louis "quai des orfèvres" Jouvet,Bourvil and Danielle Delorme does not make up for this trite story of an ingenue and these light-hearted gallantries .Probably the only Clouzot movie which is not worth watching.
