A maths professor decides to take the morning off and instead teach his students the history of France's most famous avenue.
"Let's Take The Champs-Élysées" is a pleasant enough romantic and flag-waving whimsy, but it's a little aimless, and early on quite dull. Its interest and worth will probably depend upon how curious one is about the individual historical stories Guitry recounts, as the tales go by so fast there's little time to invest in any of the characters. The best by far is the one with Guitry himself as Louis XV, but the rest by and large end up diverting enough.
The film improves as it goes on, but it still remains something of a disappointment, all in all. Handsome to look at, though.
