Full movie description "L'habit vert":Count Hubert de Latour Latour is the lover of the Duchess de Maulévrier. The day he is surprised by the Duke in the company of his wife and... in a rather compromising situation, Hubert resorts to a subterfuge, claiming that he has come to see the Duchess to seek support to be elected at the Institut de France, whose chairman is precisely her husband. The latter takes him at his word and Hubert becomes... a member of the French Academy! Which just shows that everything leads to everything.
Reviews of the L'habit vertWhich way to the French Academy?it is a learned society of leading men (and since 1980 women)of letters.They are in charge of the French dictionary notably :there is an excellent scene where the society is speaking of an entry about ...camomile ;one of them has written an interminable entry:"who on earth is going to read that? sneers one of his colleagues.
"l'habit vert" ,is excellent " filmed stage" production,one more reason which makes you wonder why Roger Richebé was despised by the old and the new wave .His film ,mainly in its second part ,is sheer delight.No one emerges unscathed from this slanging match:the nobles,the bourgeois,the wives,the husbands,the cuckolds,even the French academy.
Caught off her guard ,while she is with her lover on his knees in front of her,the lady is in distress but the man's secretary comes to the rescue;he was begging his mistress to help him become an Academician ,like the cheated husband.The latter is looking for a candidate for there is a vacancy.
"but I cannot be an Academician ,says the unfortunate lover,I failed my Bac (high school diploma)" "never mind,the wife answers ,to get an A level ,you have got to know something,but to become part of the Academy ,it does not matter!" What an academy! a dean who is a senile laughing old fossil, a society of men dressed in green ("l'habit vert" )who sometimes mistake one page of their speech for a love letter.
The Rumanian wife ,who is not entirely fluent in French sighs: "I'm in a sorry state of prostitution " (instead of "prostration") Such a film is not irrelevant today;on the contrary,it seems more topical today than ever:the race for power,for honors ,for medals.There are people who would die ,so to speak ,to get the "Legion d'honneur" ,a decoration which is given to anybody anyway nowadays.
My God! If the Cardinal de Richelieu came back....
