Journey thru the past
12 September 2014 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

The movie is first a depiction of the (snobbish ,the press writes)residents of a fashionable district in the fifties .Beginning with a Boris Vian quotation,the atmosphere is depicted down to the smallest details:jazz in the cellars,Café De Flore,radio broadcasts,girls who resemble Juliette Greco (except for the nose),gays,existentialism,wealthy dandy (who watches "the most dangerous game" ) and the whole shebang.

This fascinating atmosphere and a young Daniel Auteuil's portrayal of a bisexual poet,a man with the child in his eyes, are the reasons to watch this first effort by Bob Swaim .The second part belongs to him and he overshadows veteran Michel Galabru as the resident private eye ,Nestor Burma .Mort Shuman (one half of the famous Pomus/Shuman team who wrote rock classics),who was fluent in French, portrays Germain Saint Germain a would be writer ,but his part is underwritten.

As for the detective story ,it is the low point of the movie:this affair of stolen jewels and murders is never exciting ,although the killer's motive for committing the crimes was not derivative for 1977.
