| Cynical black comedy
I've seen about six or seven Julien Duvivier films so far, and "The Man In The Raincoat" is easily the weakest of them; not that it's bad, mind you, but it moves along sluggishly (I had to watch it in two parts), goes on too long, and by the end turns into a muddled corpse fest. Fernandel has some funny moments, but not enough for 107 minutes of duration. **1/2 out of 4.
