Willy Rozier is not much of a director,but it does not matter here cause Feydeau's play is ,as usual ,irresistible.
This is filmed Théâtre De Boulevard (light comedies performed in the theaters of the Paris Boulevards);and you get what you expect: husband,wives ,lovers,cuckolds,mistaken identities,you name it .
The title "Monsieur Chasse " (=the Master is hunting) may have here different meanings depending on the person you are talking to,but definitely not hunting rabbits or hares .
Paul Meurisse is wonderful as the poet doctor in love with a woman who does not want to cheat on her husband as long as he is faithful.He tells the virtuous wife hunting may not be what she's thinking of;besides her hubby uses his book of poems as a table wedge !
A very modern ending ,showing that Rozier was able to think "cinema" when he was filming theater.
