Critics reviews

Jacques Becker’s underworld pictures remain his most recognized stateside, but this virtually unknown comedy is perhaps his most elegant work and definitely his most classical.

There are touches of humor in almost all of Becker’s films, but Edouard and Carolineis one of his purest comedies. It also contains some very ugly moments, all the more uncomfortable because they are smuggled in among so much charm and so many belly laughs, which come largely courtesy of Vernon, an inspired and natural comic actress who also happens to be a radiant beauty.
