....maybe the best short stories writer France has ever had,please ,avoid this piece of garbage!Do not let the cast (Simone Signoret,Claude Brasseur,Miou-Miou) fool you.The movie really gives the people what they want ,that is to say spicy scenes from a dissolute life and nothing else.As far as the literary creation is concerned,there's almost nothing.Flaubert vaguely talks to him about one of his books and there a ridiculous attempt to transfer Maupassant's imagery (his terrifying short story "le horla")to the screen.
Michel Drach ,who was a commendable director when it came to making intimate stories ("Elise ou la vraie vie" "les violons du bal") ,sinks without a trace here.Better watching again and again Renoir's "une partie de campagne" .
