Out of time
3 January 2004 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

Christian -Jacques,like so many directors of the forties/Fifties collapsed in the sixties.And I do not put the blame on the new wave for once.He cast the legendary couple of the Angelique movies (Robert Hossein and Michèle Mercier) in a whodunit so predictable you will have guessed the truth (or to be precise "the second truth",which is the title of the movie)long before the end.This kind of cinema was completely out of time in 1966.

Word to the wise:do take Christian -Jacques's "les disparus de Saint Agil instead!
