Another necklace affair.
27 September 2005 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

Some day,French cinema buffs should have a look at Richard Pottier's works.After all,he invented "some like it hot" !Wilder's movie was a remake of his "fanfare d'amour".)

"27,rue de la paix" is a strange detective story,which takes a slap at the popular press,which Billy Wilder would have loved -as he probably loved "fanfare d'amour" which was made around the short time he was working in France .There's no leads but a handful of characters ,none of whom is really the star of the movie.A necklace,an exhibit in a criminal affair, goes from hand to hand .

A rich elegant woman (Saint-Cyr) wants to divorce her womanizer hubby(Jules Berry).She calls one of her friends,a lawyer ,for help,but he is friend with the man too.The plot thickens when the husband's ex-lover is murdered.The ending is unexpected,but it is far-fetched all the same.

Entertaining though.
