Desire ★★★½

Betrays Guitry's theatrical roots a bit too much and maybe he was too drained from the other two films that surround this one - story of a cheat & pearls of the crown - which are hypercinematic in their own ways to jam this one in with visual invention - still it has a breezy tone and a bunch of wisdom pearls - more in love with Arletty from this one than his others.

Would prob make a good double feature with My Man Godfrey.
