Un Moment d'Egarement

Film, Comedy
Computerised comedy: find two unappetisingly overweight hams (Marielle and Lanoux), cast them as a pair of menopausal mates adrift in St Tropez, let one of them be seduced by the other's nubile daughter. Should the need arise, through miscalculation, for an atom of real narrative invention (as here, with the film's denouement), just leave it fashionably 'open-ended' by resorting to a freeze-frame. Its sole interest is as a choice specimen of the complacent obsession of French film-makers with near-incestuous, near-paedophiliac liaisons. Remade equally blandly by Stanley Donen as Blame It On Rio.
