5.0 out of 5 stars GALLIC COMEDY AT ITS BEST
This film was nominated for an Oscar as best foreign film. I can't remember which film won but this one would have been fully deserving. The success of the film is partly due to the chemistry and personalities of the two lead players;Marie-Christine Barrault and Victor Lanoux, the two respective cousins both with cheating spouses, who come over as two incredibly likable...

3.0 out of 5 stars Passable
I buy French films in the hope that I can keep up my rusty language skills. However, I frequently refer to the sub-titles without often realising it. This film started off quite well but became less credible as it progressed. Nothing too bad but I stopped liking the characters after a while and even began to feel sorry for their dreadful spouses. I rate it just OK.

This review is from: Cousin Cousine [1976] [DVD] (DVD)
This film was nominated for an Oscar as best foreign film. I can't remember which film won but this one would have been fully deserving. The success of the film is partly due to the chemistry and personalities of the two lead players;Marie-Christine Barrault and Victor Lanoux, the two respective cousins both with cheating spouses, who come over as two incredibly likable people and you feel yourself almost cheering them on in their affair. There is one particularly memorable scene when they are in the bath together and paint themselves with body paints which afterwards, they can't get off. The rest of the cast is of an equal caliber. Definitely worth the buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars NIce film that tries a little too hard to be funny, 3 April 2010

nice film. very french with some very typical family scenes at weddings etc. love the mixed moral tale.
The actors play it too farce-like for me as the story could be so powerful and still funny without very much effort.

3.0 out of 5 stars dvd is messed up, 17 Feb 2008
This review is from: Cousin Cousine [1976] [DVD] (DVD)
The film itself is quite likeable (I'd give it a 4 overall), but this particular DVD suffers from color mis-registration that is pretty excessive at the beginning of the film, tapering off somewhere near the middle and disappearing more or less towards the end. (And otherwise the print seem to be fine, which makes it even more disappointing.) In watchable shape, but defintely could have been done better.
