Review by Michael Jucker (posted on 14-Oct-2007)
In 1969 I saw The April Fools for the first time, to write a review. I did not then, but I will now. Great imagery. The art-works at the party, the early morning scenes (especially the vintage R-R on the bridge has ad-potential), the TWA-terminal, Catherine Deneuve - they all reflect the sophistication of an era mainly related to the 1950s and 1960s. Lovely theme, "April Fools", sung by Dionne Warwick. The we´ve-got-to-get-out-of-here story appears typical of an age contesting hitherto well-established values. So what if The April Fools did not score as well with the critics as 2001. The film charmed people then. It probably still does.
Do you know something we don't?
