Pinoteau was a journeyman director who made some hits using box office stars like Lino Ventura, Pierre Richard and Sophie Marceau. This movie would pass unnoticed were it not for the astonishing presence of Isabelle Adjani, only 18 at the time. You just can't take your eyes off her as long as she's on screen. The abrupt adolescent gestures of rage and frustration are impressive to watch.Lino Ventura and Annie Girardot enjoy the parents; they're both nice to watch. Ventura was an action star who should enjoy comedy well. His slow-burn reactions to his daughter's emotional excesses deliever much of the fun.
Movie critic Mr.Lalit Rao has keenly observed that apart from movies set in innumerable Parisian Cafés,films about families and family life are also an essential facet of French cinema.This is done in a very frank manner as French directors sense that there is no hurt in talking about troubles which afflict French society at large.They are of the opinion that it is solely through discussions about problems that solutions are found.La Gifle is one such movie which deals with a middle class French family which sees cracks develop between a husband,his wife and his young daughter.However,it gotta be stated that "La Gifle" is not only about family issues but also how troubles within a family are solved.In 1974,French director Claude Pinoteau worked with one of France's most popular screenwriters Jean Loup Dabadie to make a true slice of life.The same squad worked again six years soon to direct and write,"La Boum"(The Party,1980)-One of French cinema's most recognizable movies about problems which affect French youngsters.La Gifle is considered an necessary movie of her illustrious cinema career by noted actress Isabelle Adjani who has publicly acknowledged Claude Pinoteau's contribution to her acting career when he chose to cast her in his films.
The game translates as a slap in the face and there are few on offer though it does stop short of slapstick. For French movie buffs it's hawg heaven via the early glimpses of Andre Dussollier and Nathalie Baye plus veterans Nicole Courcel, Annie Girardot and, of course, Lino Ventura. Although Isabelle Adjani had been around for a couple of years this was her breakout role and she is effective and extracts max mileage from the occasion but the true joy is watching Ventura and Girardot. Jean-Loup Dabadie was already registering as a competent scenarist and he would go on to work for Yves Montand, not least writing a song, Valentin, for Montand's son. Pinotau was a fine journeyman director and this is certainly worth a look.
