A Hell of a Day

Movies, Comedy
This energetic Paris-based comedy begins in wild fashion with a furtive fling at a drunken wedding and then gets gradually more chaotic. There's attrition between the classes (Fillières, the pretty but bad-tempered assistant in a photo development shop has a grudge against the bourgeoisie), romantic conspiracy (we witness the comic but pathetic attempts of one self-conscious housewife to cheat on her husband), and plenty of knockabout farce, all orchestrated with considerable wit and charm.
