The Story of a Cheat

Le roman d'un tricheur

Directed by Sacha Guitry
France, 1936
Comedy, Drama


Considered Sacha Guitry’s masterpiece, this fleet, witty picaresque about a gambler and petty thief is a whimsical delight. Guitry himself stars as the “tricheur” looking back fondly on a life of crime, which he narrates with an effervescence matched by his clever editing and cinematography.
