I've never seen this play on stage, so I can't tell if it's a faithful translation into film, but I do know that the acting is very fine (even when done at an absolutely frenetic pace). Danielle Darrieux, whom I'd seen in dramatic roles in the past, shows a talent for rapid-fire comedy, and Julien Carette, that Renoir stalwart of the Thirties, is superb as Amelie's father. What a piece of uproarious comedy is the marriage scene, with the continual interruptions of Carette. Autant-Lara directs very capably--he said it was the favourite of all his films. The excellent decors are by Max Douy.
