Le Maître Nageur (1978)

Maître Nageur, Le (1978, FRA) C-90m. ** D: Jean-Louis Trintignant. Starring Jean-Claude Brialy, Guy Marchand, Stefania Sandrelli, Moustache, Jean-Louis Trintignant. Marchand plays a hapless singer, who meets a woman whose dreams always comes true. Naturally, she has dreamt that they will fall in love and be rich one day. Marchand then takes up job as a swim master (maître- nageur) at eccentric zillionaire Zopoulos' estate, which seems to be ruled by odd butler Brialy. Surreal comedy is full of absurd ideas, only some of them are funny. Mainly interesting for Trintignant's direction; his only other one being for UNE JOURNEE BIEN REMPLIE (1972). Based on the novel by Vehé Katcha.
