Tout feu tout flamme Movie Reviews

All fire, all flame but the film is not all that lame

Yves Montand was a French film star of the black and white era. Isabelle Adjani has been the French film star of the colored era.This is for the first time that they have starred together. The result is a shocker.Both of them shine wonderfully well in a film about gambling house.The views around Lac Leman in Switzerland are nice.The unique thing about this film is that although it is an entertainer it has not neglected the message related to family values.This is a very unique role for Yves Montand as he has always played lover boy roles for the most part of his career.In this film he plays a father who is mostly away from home for some secret work. It is revealed through various twists and turns of the plot that he wants to make a casino.This is a good film for people wishing to watch a film with their family. Admirers of author cinema will be a little disappointed as Rappeneau touch is not same as that of other authors.

Only Montand-Adjani pairing

I will eventually manage to write about all Rappeneau’s films; I think he is the finest director of comedy the French cinema has had in modern times (and it is a crowded field: just think of Yves Robert, Claude Berri, Molinaro, Francis Veber…) Tout feu, tout flamme dates from 1981, a period when Isabelle Adjani could seemingly do no wrong, and she is terrific here: she is sometimes required to do very fast line readings, often at the very edge of comprehension by the viewer, and it all works so well.

Montand was always good playing a man with a good nature who is forced by fate or circumstances to live on the edge of criminality. Here, his history of bad business deals has forced him to leave his family in France for a few years, then to return with grandiose plans for a casino on Lake Geneva. Lauren Hutton as his mistress shows a capable hand at comedy, and Alain Souchon is good as Adjani’s love interest. A pity this was the only pairing of Montand and Adjani.

Wheel Of Fire

Though he does have three daughters it may be stretching things to compare Yves Montand to King Lear, for one thing the Cordelia counterpart would be the eldest, Isabelle Adjani, and not the youngest and though they come close neither father nor daughter actually dies so that Lear’s great speech “thou art a soul in bliss, but I am bound upon a wheel of fire, which mine own tears do scald like molten lead” doesn’t really apply. On the other hand the itinerant charmer/loser Montand does entertain plans to turn the old homestead into a casino so ‘wheel’ gets under the wire as does ‘fire’ which is in the title. Sue me, already. Jean-Paul Rappeneau’s CV is sparse but choice. His seven full length features have garnered no less than nine Cesar Best Acting nominations and one third of those have gone home with the gong. Prior to becoming a hyphenate (Writer-Director) he wrote the screenplays for Zazie Dans le metro and L’Homme du Rio and his writer-director credits include Cyrano de Bergerac, Le Hussard sur le toit and Bon Voyage. He worked twice with the two leads here – Le Sauvage with Montand and Bon Voyage with Adjani – but this was the only time they starred together. If you have even a slight aversion to Montand you may find his charm a little too hard to take but then again no one DOES charm as well as Montand and if you like it you’ll love it. This time around he needs all the charm he can get as the eternal dreamer whose constant pursuit of the big score leaves his family relying on eldest daughter Adjani to stay ahead of the game. Luckily she has a good job as an interpreter and just when we have established her twin roles Montand turns up like the proverbial bad penny, effortlessly charming the rest of the family via song and presents (did I say that no one SINGS like Montand, either), leaving Adjani to provide the conflict. This time he has a new scheme, to convert the family’s second home, beside Lake Geneva, into a casino. This involves getting into bed with some dodgy characters, chases, gun-play and father-daughter bonding. The result is a feel-good, professional package that every Montand fan will want to see and/or own.
