Film Review

Boîte à vendre is a French short film first released in 1951, directed by Claude André Lalande. The film stars Jeannette Allouin, Simone Alta, Gaby Basset, René Berthier and Francis Boyer.

Our overall rating for Boîte à vendre is: good, unlikely to rate in everybody's book as a classic but it does have some things going for it - not a particularly challenging or inspired film, but watchable all the same.

The actor Gaby Basset has also appeared in: Le poignard malais (1931), La coqueluche de ces dames (1935), Gas-Oil (1955) and Rafles sur la ville (1958).

Other short films from France that are recommended viewing include: Abel Gance's Au secours! (1924), Jean-Claude Carrière's Heureux anniversaire (1962), Max Linder's Max victime du quinquina (1911), Man Ray's Poison (1935) and Lucien Nonguet's La Vie et la passion de Jésus Christ (1903).
