Movie Info

In this light, sometimes tongue-in-cheek mystery based on a Charles Williams thriller -- with snippets of Hitchcock, Kubrick, and even Victor Hugo -- director François Truffaut showcases one of his favorite actresses, Fanny Ardant, as an enterprising secretary in love with her boss but up against clearing him of murder. Julien Vercel (Jean-Louis Trintignant) is a real estate dealer accused of killing his wife and her lover. He hides in his office while his secretary, Barbara (Ardant), sets out to discover what really happened and why. When Barbara starts looking into the dark past of her boss' wife, she comes across illicit love affairs, a prostitution ring, and shady private detectives, until, finally, her suspicions turn toward Julien's lawyer himself. Tragically, Vivement Dimanche was to be Truffaut's last film; the great French director died of a cancerous brain tumor in 1984.


Critic Reviews for Vivement dimanche! (Finally, Sunday)(Confidentially Yours)

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

Truffaut evokes such a pale reflection of the prototypes he's copying that the results might be more accurately described as noir blah.

With the clack of spike heels on pavement and the shadow of bare legs through frosted glass, Truffaut evokes the spontaneous sexual spectacle of city life.

December 3, 2012 | Full Review…

A bright, knowing, somewhat too affectionate variation on the sort of bloodless murder mysteries that were as much a staple of Hollywood production schedules in the 1930's and 40's as they were of the lending libraries of that era.

August 30, 2004 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Never adds up to much of anything but is always entertaining.

A tribute to American film noir.

Beyond his obsession for detail and natural cynicism, Truffaut is a true romantic

Audience Reviews for Vivement dimanche! (Finally, Sunday)(Confidentially Yours)

Truffaut's final film and also his tribute to Hitchcock. Appropriately shot in black and white this is a great Neo-Noir. An entertaining film that kept me interested throughout, a nice end to Truffaut's career.
