Voyages Secrets: Paul Prevert (02.03.09)

Part of a Jacques Prevert/Marcel Carne season at the BFI, this farce was written by the former and directed by his brother. A simple robbery is conflated with a failing motor coach firm and an off screen revolution to provide a series of delightful visual gags which keep the action moving admirably. no great opus this but a pleasing diversion from the rather odd motor coach
that takes its clients on the mystery tour to an early appearance Martine Carol in the lead female role.
