Mourning becomes Electra.
28 July 2005 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

Michel Drach had always been a director who never knew what he might do.One of his first efforts "on n'enterre pas le dimanche" (1959) was an offbeat film noir,whose hero was a black man,which was unusual for the time.Before entering his most fruitful period ("Elise ou la vraie vie" "les violons du bal") he tried his hand at thrillers and he made "safari diamants" with his then wife Marie-José Nat and Jean -Louis Trintignant.

The movie begins with Trintignant wandering through the city while complaining about his pointless life,with voice-over galore.He gets involved in a diamonds theft and meets a woman ,Elektra ,with whom he falls in love-but ,as for her ,we will never know what she likes best :he or the diamonds-Trintignant and Nat were perhaps not the right choose -both of them are better with intimate material-and there's not much chemistry between them.The part of the lovers with the Police on their tail was not tailor-made for them,but German Horst Frank is a competent villain.Mildly entertaining.
