(Jean-Paul Rappeneau, France/Italy 1975).
Rating: PG

A homage to classic Hollywood screwball comedies, only with French stars (Catherine Deneuve and Yves Montand) and set largely in South America. Deneuve departs from her usual cool persona to play a manic Frenchwoman in Venezuela who is on the run from her possessive Italian husband (Luigi Vannucchi), and who proceeds to turn the life of a reclusive perfume maker (Montand) upside-down.

In France, Le Sauvage received four César nominations for Best Actress, Best Director, Best Cinematography and Best Direction. Gene Moskowitz of Variety felt that the film's direction was perhaps too leisurely, but he admired the performances: "Montand is in good form. Bearded and witty, he is a good foil to Deneuve's attempt to let her hair down from her usual cool roles."

He added, "Supporting players are helpful, especially Luigi Vannucchi as the bombastic fiancé and Tony Roberts as the hapless victim of the stolen, expensive painting. Top technical credits and production dress are added plus factors.” - James Steffen, TCM
