"Pierre et Jean" is the third movie directed by André Cayatte, and my favorite in his classic period of the 40, the direction (actors, but also editing and cinematography) is virtuoso, funny in its first part, gripping in the second part. Funny with Noël Roquevert's part of the husband who doesn't see his wife's adventure nearly in front of him. Much less funny when their son Pierre (fantastic Gilberto Gil) discovers the truth about himself, the movie turns in hateful tension. But I wasn't satisfied with the last shot, the opposite of the scenes before, but that's my personal opinion.
