Drôle de drame (1937)

»If we say the truth, they will think we are stupid. That’s worse.«

What could have been a main plot twist is leaked after only a few minutes, but the colourful characters, bizarre costumes, substandard disguises, increasingly contrived intrigue, and heartily overdone acting still makes this whimsical gem weirdly enjoyable from start to finish.

A french production based on a british novel – filled with mild humor and containing a slightly tragic streak. In my book of rumours, lies, and reputation.

»All I need is a little money, killing a butcher once in a while, having a little sun and a little love.«
