For the first part only
Jean Loubignac directed lousy comedies, like "Coup dur chez les mous". But "Foyer perdu" is a level much more above : better casting (Gaby Morlay as the sensitive mother, Guy Rapp as the authoritarian father, Aimé Clarion as the cool godfather) and above all the bourgeois incisive dialogues we don't hear in modern movies. The first thirty minutes are great, a constant evolution until the climax. Then the story turns in lousy melodrama. And appears a new character, Guy Rapp's mother, played by superb Mary Marquet, but a problem shocked me : Marquet and Rapp in real life are only 5 years difference, so not plausible. See the Paris wine market sequence, next to the French cinémathèque. Just a curiosity.
