Zazie dans le métro

Regissert av Louis Malle
Frankrike, Italia, 1960
Komedie, Fantasy

Synopsis

Based on a popular novel by Raymond Queneau that had been considered unadaptable, Malle’s audacious hit Zazie dans le métro is a bit of stream-of-conscious slapstick, wall-to-wall with visual gags, editing tricks, and effects, and made with flair on the cusp of the French New Wave.

Anmeldelser fra kritikere

It’s difficult for me to think of many works that I feel more divided about. Insofar as it tries to recreate the freedom and joy of silent slapstick, it obviously fails; the freedom may be there, but it’s hard to think of any comedy that’s more joyless and relentlessly anti-humanist. But the film is clearly aiming for a lot more than amusement or any sort of spiritual camaraderie, and regardless of what its intentions may (or may not) have been, it’s still a veritable feast for the senses.

Malle was paving the way here for Richard Lester (who seems rather restrained by comparison), and there is plenty to enjoy in watching one of France’s premiere directors traduisez et trahissez one of her great authors in the service of popular cinema.

Arguably Louis Malle’s best work… this wild spree goes overboard reproducing Mack Sennett-style slapstick, parodying various films of the 1950s, and playing with editing and color effects (Henri Decae’s cinematography is especially impressive), though gradually it becomes a rather disturbing nightmare about fascism.
