This was a fun movie. There is little dialogue. The majority of the film is visual with a voice-over narration. The story takes us through the life of a man who came from humble origins and no matter how much he tries to be honest, the world keeps making him a cheat. The fun lies in the child-like and humorous way in which director Sacha Guitry narrates. I particularity loved how he described Monaco as a place where everyone works for a casino. So it makes sense that when he becomes a citizen they give him a rake to use as croupier. A lot of fun.
