This turns into one of Greville's most chaotic efforts. Star Dauphin doesn't
appear until the film's been running an hour. There are extraordinary lapses like the oil lamp trailing an electric cord while it's carried down three flights of stairs.
Blonde Suzy Carrier / Dorothée is celebrating her engagement to Henri Guisol when she spots her dad paying paying him her dot in cash and, outraged, seeks an escape. Jules Berry returned from purgatory figures this as a chance for the good deed he needs to redeem himself. He takes her to his old home, complete with his portrait. Burglar Claude Dauphin and her share a scene on the bed made an island when a tap is left running. He involves her in a Jewellery store scam but Berry repays his karmic debt.
This incoherent, studiofied forties French movie struggles to be a companion piece to NUIT FANTASTIQUE, VISITEURS DU SOIR and LES JEUX SONT FAITS which it anticipates.
