Money comes, money goes.
Yesterday I found and saw this comedy made just before the liberation of France (february 10th 1945).I haven't seen a lot of French films made during the second world war: I can only remember "Le Corbeau " directed by Henri-Georges Clouzot (september 28th 1943) and "Les enfants du paradis" directed by Marcel Carné (March 2nd 1945).
Farandole is a serie of short stories:, a ruined banker abandoned by his mistress, a prostitute who meets the banker just before his suicide, a crook who goes away with the money of the prostitute, an actress who meet the crook, a typist who kills the wife of her lover, the trial of the typist,the crook is arrested,etc.I forget the story of a poodle called "Bonsoir" gift of the ruined bank to the prostitute.
It's a simple comedy and the most important is the very good performance of Paulette Dubost as the prostitute.
