The story of Zazie (Catherine Demongeot), a ten year old kid who desperately wants to ride on the Paris Metro during her holidays. But when she finds out there is a 24 hour strike she runs riot through the city.
Benny le Hill
- Zazie in the Underground review by JD
This makes Benny Hill look sophisticated. It is goofy, zany, and ridiculous. It makes you smile for a while but unless you want your light entertainment to be a light froth don't bother. There are a lot of Benny Hill type chases and little girls doing silly things.
Bad day at the office for Louis only 2 years after the excellent “Lift to the Scaffold”, it seems comedy was not his forte. The foul-mouthed live-wire Zazie of Queneau’s novel (which I can recommend) is lost amongst cartoonish adults competing for her limelight. Goodies-lite surrealism does not excuse slipshod slapstick.
