Critics reviews

The gags have a cartoonists’ cleverness (the cigarettes on the paving stones beside a sports car as it inches forward) and a stage performer’s inventiveness (the expanding dining-room table, the flying dabs of shaving cream), and Étaix himself, even when he’s just standing still, virtually dances through the whole thing.
