LA BURLA DEL DIABLO (1953)

3 years, 3 months ago at Nov 23 12:29
Que tanto el director como el guionista y algunos de sus principales actores pusieran el alcohol como principal protagonista de esta película durante sus reuniones fuera del rodaje, es más que apreciable con echarle un simple vistazo. Desconozco si será por el efecto del whisky en sus ya bastante desmadradas personalidades, pero la verdad es que la narración se resiente en cuanto a saltos en s... read more

Description: A clever cult favorite written by Truman Capote, directed by John Huston and starring Humphrey Bogart - how can you lose? Bogart heads a superior cast in this tale of a gang of swindlers who look to purchase African lands rich in uranium. This is not the tough film noir you might expect from the people that brought you "The Malte ... (more)

LA BURLA DEL DIABLO (1953)

“Que tanto el director como el guionista y algunos de sus principales actores pusieran el alcohol como principal protagonista de esta película durante sus reuniones fuera del rodaje, es más que apreciable con echarle un simple vistazo. Desconozco si será por el efecto del whisky en sus ya bastante desmadradas personalidades, pero la verdad es que la narración se resiente en cuanto a saltos en su guión (¿existió? se dice que el mismo se escribió sobre la marcha), más no así en sus aciertos en cuanto a lo divertido de situaciones y personajes.

Junto a ello, la presencia de actrices -en especial la de Gina Lollobrígida- parecen un simple añadido (se aprecia que no asistían a las juergas nocturnas) en su planteamiento y escenificación, sobre todo al término de la pelí” read more

"20.7 PC Hyvä, muttei juurikaan aikansa jännäreistä erottuva filmi. Bogartia katselee aina mielellään ja hän on tässä aivan yhtä elegantti kuin on totuttu. Naiset ovat kauniita, dialogi nasevaa ja elokuvan veijarimainen huumori on aivan kohdallaan."

"5.11. 2010 John Huston's parody "Beat the Devil" follows the adventures of a group of unlucky and awkward scoundrels, who are planning to travel to East Africa to tap into riches waiting for them. However, the boat is delayed because the captain is drunk and the ships's engine breaks down, but these troubles are only the beginning. For example, carelessly talking woman of the group causes troubles to pretty much everyone she meets and in one funny scene Humphrey Bogart's character encounters an"

"11.4. Todella mustaa ja kieroutunutta huumoria tarjoava leffa on tasoltaan hyvin vaihteleva. Näyttelijäkaartia katsoo mielellään, mutta välillä leffaa vaivaa tylsyys. Onneksi yleinen tunnelma on sen verran härski, että katsomisesta nauttii."
