Storyline

Bastien du Boccage is a repeat offender: hasn't he been sent to jail no fewer than six times? But he is no ordinary criminal mind you. As a matter of fact he is a newspaper editor and should have no problems with justice. The trouble is that he has a sister, Lucrèce, who is agony aunt in his newspaper and who tends not to mince her words. To make matters worse, Francine, his daughter, has fallen in love with Bruno, a penniless student and Lucrèce is prepared to do anything to prevent her marriage... Written by Guy Bellinger

Teaming up for the worst!
21 July 2007 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

Imagine that!Two legends of the French cinema ,who had never played together and who finally teamed up :Pierre Fresnay and Arletty together! It could have been a dream...but it turned out to be a nightmare .The director is incapable of directing and the two stars are left to their own devices: both overact and both give dismal performances.(and I love both of them though)

Anyway,the screenplay was uninteresting : a journalist (Arletty) writes inflammatory articles and the newspaper's owner ,her brother (Fresnay) has been sent to jail six times in two years .There's also a love interest between Fresnay's daughter and a boy (Jean-Claude Brialy) who has got no diplomas .Brialy and Arletty became good friends during the shooting.

NB:Arletty 's part was first intended for Yvonne Printemps,Fresnay's wife,but she had health problems and had to give up.
