Six shorts in this film that reminded me of some French movies of the 50's and some Italian comedies of the 60's and the 70's. France is France and I understand now why this film didn't have so much publicity when the Academy awards were discussed. Just imagine let's say Leonardo di Caprio presenting his latest politically correct movie and shooting in the same time a near porno auteur film. But I'm wandering from the point. And in fact, Brando dit it in the early 70's. Now I laughed a lot at The Players and can't but recommended it to you if you're looking for a smart comedy.
