VAUDEVILLE (1985) [Feature]

France (MIFF 1986 )
Director: Jean Marboeuf

Gaston and Victor work at the same department store and are
firm friends Gaston has been married for 20 years to the
lovely, caring Madeleine, while Victor is a bachelor ceaselessly
seeking new sexual partners and bringing his friend stories of
one exciting conquest after another. The domesticated Gaston
is painfully jealous of Victor, while Victor yearns for domesticity
and stability. Pierre. Gaston's older brother has a younger wife.
but is wracked with jealousy as he suspects she is cheating on
him. And she is — with Victor among others — and when she's
hit by a bus while hurrying home from an assignment. Pierre is
as affected by the fact that she wasn't wearing panties at the
time as he is by her death ... it's the discovery of an
unheralded little gem like VAUDEVILLE that makes festival
going worthwhile.
