An Italian Straw Hat URL: http://www.march.es/conferencias/anteriores/voz.aspx?p1=22999&l=2

The world, the rhythm, and the misunderstandings of the vaudeville, taken to film: this is Un chapeau de paille d'Italie directed by René Clair in 1927 from a theatrical work of Eugène Labiche - who is considered the father of this genre- and his usual collaborator, Marc-Michel. In opposition to the a comedy cinema like the North American, with more emphasis in the physical expression, Clair directs a comedy full of European style twists, developing with irony and subtlety a portrait of representative characters from the French bourgeois of the end of 19th century. His sense of humor and the humor of the situations are a trademark from this director so unjustly forgotten, but who in Un chapeau de paille d'Italie managed to make real the title of one of his other famous movies: Le silence est d'or (Silence is Golden).
