With this film in costumes, full of lightness, François Ozon plunges us into the heart of a reputedly austere era.

The incongruous situations of this detective comedy and its deliberately theatrical tone give a film that is tenderly absurd and full of twists and turns.

Freely adapted from the play by Georges Berr and Louis Verneuil, a great success of 1934, the 55-year-old director wanted to project himself into the concerns of our time, in particular on the relationship between men and women.

“Talking cinema has always seemed to me to be the art of lying par excellence, and for a long time I have wanted to tell a story around a false culprit or a false culprit”, he declared on this subject. at the microphone of France Inter.

The very rich cast includes Nadia Tereszkiewicz and Rebecca Marder in the two main roles, and a gallery of colorful secondary characters played by Isabelle Huppert, Fabrice Luchini, Dany Boon, André Dussollier, Michel Fau and Daniel Prévost.

Released in theaters March 8.
