Le Nouveau Testament

Directed by Sacha Guitry
France, 1936


Based on Guitry’s own stage play about a sanctimonious fellow who eventually’s victimized by his own hypocrisy. Little effort’s made to “cinematize” the property, which’s filmed just as it was staged. Audiences didn’t mind, some cheered each of Guitry’s bon mots as if attending a live performance.
