The New Testament (1936) Poster

Based on Guitry's own stage play about a sanctimonious fellow who eventually's victimized by his own hypocrisy. Little effort's made to "cinematize" the property, which's filmed just as it was staged. .

| It's The New Testament, Goddamn It
I do wish IMDB would stop listing films by titles that bear no resemblance to that of their original language: it's really quite confusing... This film is known (when known at all) as Le Nouveau Testament (The New Testament), not "Indiscretions" - a title I've never heard it referred to as anywhere. (EDIT: 8 months after I left this review the title has finally been corrected)

Aaanyhow, this is yet another quite stagey Drawing Room Comedy, elevated to a higher level by the Guitry touch, and hence more airy and flippant and saucy AND more serious and urgent and philosophical than pretty much anyone else would have made it. I enjoyed my time spent with it.

I don't have much to add - there's some lovely outdoor scenes of Paris that are now of historic interest, and Jacqueline Delubac is very pretty. The film, much like this review, ends rather abruptly.
