Death‘s Glamour

Death‘s Glamour

Inspired by Cecil B. DeMille’s The Whispering Chorus (1917), but turning what was once drama into a black comedy, Moullet stages a deviant remake in order to expound his reflections about fame and his own work by telling the story of a film director, played by Moullet himself, who feigns his own death and adopts a new identity. In his very own way, both devoted to film and comical, Moullet plays with the role of being director in the present film climate, in which the sun doesn’t shine on French veterans. The result is a masterfully weird snigger movie for connoisseurs and film lovers.
