Synopsis:
Double bill of France comedies.

The New Testament
A perfect introduction to the work of Sacha Guitry, 'The New Testament' (Le Nouveau testament) encapsulates all of the Guitry hallmarks: sensational dialogue, chamber-comedy set-design a la scene and high-stakes lovers' aggression with a dash of righteous purpose. Husbands and wives, lovers and gigolos, each break a sweat when Dr. Marcelin's newly-revised last will and testament is prematurely revealed.
My Father Was Right
After being left for another man by his wife, Charles Bellanger raises his only son to fear and suspect women. Years later, such an education is bearing fruit.
