Director Michel Deville and screenwriter wife Rosalinde present this comic saga of slamming doors, mistaken identities and sexual gymnastics. Lucette is a celebrated diva, in love with Bois D'Enghein, who has omitted to tell her that he agreed to marry the young daughter of a widowed baroness. Chaos ensues when Lucette is asked to sing at the wedding.There are enjoyably excessive performances from the cast, but given the lack of tonal variety, the crisp running time proves a relief.
