Michel Kealot (Gerard Depardieu) is a lover of the music of Mahler and the wife of a painter who is from a family that has not been persecuted by the Nazis. In the first half of the film he is working as a carpenter in Paris. He falls in love with a prostitute named Valerie (Claire Forlani), but she is soon having an affair with a French aristocrat and their affair escalates. The husband is the wealthy Louis-Philippe (Bernard Hermann), who is a fanatic about his faith and opposes any mixing of religions. The wife is Mariette (Claire Forlani), who is a lover of Gerard Depardieu. The last half of the film is played as a play by the playwright, Philippe Vaillant. Philippe is a Christian, but his work is already a satire and it is obvious that the film is satire. The story is satirical. The first half of the film is funny, but then the story becomes silly and the film is over. The second half is a bit worse. The main reason is that the film is quite long, more than an hour and a half. The director is capable of a good movie, but I would not call it a good film. I did like the cinematography. The lighting and the photography are quite good. The film has no problems with sound. The acting is fine. The dialogues are silly. The music is good. The film is a bit too long, but the second half is very funny. This film has a better script than La Champagne de la Hauteuil, but still this film is better than La Ronde. I think that this film is a bit better than L'Atalante, but not much. I think that the best thing about this film is that it is a satire. If you are interested in the cinema, and especially if you are interested in the cinema of Bernard Hermann, you should see this film.

As a child of the 50s, I was an avid fan of the radio drama "The Radio Adventures of J.P. Morgan," a treasure trove of character sketches, wonderfully edited retellings of the radio's past episodes, and that all-important show and radio entertainment that stuck with you. The TV series was cancelled at a time when this doc was being broadcast on Saturday afternoons on HBO. The radio show would be brought back into the mix only to be shown again on HBO that same week. These days, the radio show was seen on television just once or twice a year, and no one knows the history of "The Radio Adventures of J.P. Morgan" the way they used to. It is a shame that this wonderful radio show is no longer on television. Some of the key aspects of the radio show remain, but the show has been removed from the TV schedule. It was replaced by the "Mad Men" era of the 1970s and 1980s. The show and the radio show were very important to the era. I hope the producers and producers of the new show can bring back the radio show to its glory days. I am anxious to see what happens. I hope it is as good as the radio show was back in the days of the 50s. I have seen the movie version of the radio show on HBO and it was a wonderful show that I would love to have the opportunity to see again. I would also love to see the show on HBO on a Saturday morning afternoons, and Sunday afternoon as the original was. If the producers and the actors can get the rights to the radio show back into the hands of the network that has it on television, it would be a wonderful thing to see. I would love to have this wonderful radio show back on television.
