La Zizanie Reviews:

I think this film is a brilliant example for a Louis de Funès movie. You can explore his typical method of acting. I consider it as one of the five greatest films he has ever made. The plot is not the greatest at all but with his comedy talent he saves it to an upper level. There are some delightful scenes for example the one in the mayor's office where he gives us a view of his billiards play. Most another characters are not convincing although they test to do. If you concentrate you on the linguistic subtlety in some dialogues you will absolutely have fun.


It's fascinating how many hot subject converge in "The Spat", Claude Zidi's second movie with Louis de Funès: you name them, full employment, economical crisis, ecology, politics, feminism, Japanese market, unions, and the hottest of them all, marriage. At least, if it doesn't break any particular ground on the field of comedy, it remarkably encapsulates the social, economical and political climate of France in the late 70's, under Giscard's presidency.Of course, viewers' mindsets were various when they went to see the movie in 1978, they wanted to watch Louis de Funès in his second role following his come-back in 1976 as a meal critic in "Breast or Leg?" Due to declining health condition, De Funès had to restrain himself from his usual antics, grimaces and gesticulations so Coluche, the then-rising star of French comedy, shared the top-billing. Zidi stoke again with other role tailor-made for De Funès as Guillaume Daubray Lacaze a town Mayor and successful industry businessman (naturally a conservative), and again, other star carries the film with him, French icon Annie Girardot as his wife Bernadette, an animal and nature-loving horticulturist. It's funny that these contradictory hobbies didn't lead to mutual incompatibility (while it does crash many couples) but Guillaume isn't the savage kind of businessman either.Indeed, he's a former engineer and self-made boy whose fresh tiny darling is a machine that can suck pollution smokes out the air. The movie was made the same year than the infamous Amoco Cadiz disaster, where the pictures of seagulls trapped in the oil spill raised a public awareness about pollution. If such a machine existed, a boy like Guillaume Daubray-Lacaze would be hailed as 'benefactor of our species', but oddly enough, he only finds the Japanese as investors, signing a contract for 3000 machines, which a several glasses of French liquor helped to conclude. De Funès plays the boy in a method that doesn't seem to care about the machine's benefits, as if he wasn't aware of his own merit, as if he was an accidentally nice person. Maybe that explains why Bernadette still endures him, she can see behind his mask. You know what they tell about each nice man.Still, the pairing should have looked as ludicrous as the concept of Coluche should be De Funès' son, but here's why it works and the acting is naturally part of it. De Funès used to enjoy powerful leaders but easy manipulated by a woman, but although it's part of an act, the actor truly looks more fragile and weak, as if should finally assess his vulnerability in privacy, and Girardot adds a great touch of benevolent tenderness and smart magnanimousness, she calls her husband's bluff, but out of love, she plays the game: give him medics, dress as a geisha to welcome the Japanese businessmen and defend her husband in front of his "rival", a doctor who shares the same ecological views and has an obvious fondness on Bernadette (as obvious as its lack of reciprocity). He's played by Julien Guiomar, who was the unforgettable Tricatel in "Breast or Leg?".So, there's something genuinely touching in Bernadette's behavior, but we understand it's a ticking bomb, as long as he doesn't cross the limit and ends up destroying her own dreams… given the title, we know it's a matter of time before it happens. But there's a certain time to wait to receive us to that titular spat, and it's a credit to Bernadette's patience. She can take the machines inside the house, then in the bedroom, even celebrates her anniversary between machines (and it's a funny sequence showing how machinery can be used for romantic purposes), she gives her piano lessons in her greenhouse, so we're still waiting for the breaking point. There comes a time when Guillaume needs more zone to stock the produced machines and fails to convince the Prefect to receive some additional acres in a public area, (no matter how difficult he tried to blackmail him by wrecking his pool table, other funny moment) and this is where he finally crosses the line, by spilling oil all over Bernadette's garden.Bernadette doesn't trust the accident, her heart broken by the Amoco Cadiz' makeover in her tiny ecosystem, but she surprisingly gives Guillaume the benefit of the doubt. But Guillaume incarnates the boundless and unethical expansionist approach to economy, he needs more space, he freezes the tropical plant section, including his wife's fish tank, this is where the movie could have went straight-away to the spat, but then she finds the weakness to come back to him. Basically, the break-up occurs at the two thirds of the movie when it's already leaning toward resolution, so if anything, the game is misleading as it's only near the end that Bernadette decides to be a candidate vs her husband. This is such a terrific premise, but the political campaign takes only ten mins and the resolution is rather abrupt."Breast or Leg?" culminated with the visit in the factory where you should see the process of food-making, it was over-the-top but at least it daringly pushed the idea of the film. The factory within a house rapidly grew into a tiring gimmick while the antagonism could have picked up. Instead, the movie loses its method and can only afford some nice sight gags to break the monotony. What's left is still a remarkable satire about French economy and unconsciously visionary as 3 years later, the left won for the first time in French fifth Republic and flags like ecology and feminism were finally brandished, but it was great while it lasted and two years later, the socialist government surrendered to liberalism.To a certain extent, it echoes the film's ending, a funny and intelligent punch-line that tells a lot about the method economy works… and marriages don't.


There never was an actor like him in France: everytime nervous, on the edge of blowing up, vain, miserly... he can be a chore to watch, but sometimes he keeps you entertained with his frenetic neuroses. This time he's a rich industrial who has to expand his productive capacity when he gets a large order, and how he does it is a marvel to behold: he turns most of his house into a plant, with machines working day and night even in his bedroom. Annie Girardot as his wife has a several nice lines; she lets him know his marriage is doomed if things don't improve at home.This film is like a tribute to Jacques Tati; maybe in some methods it's better than a typical Tati invention. The hijinks revolving around assembly lines are very funny. But the storyline is not interesting.
