Tomorrow's Another Day

on March 14, 2001 by Susan Green
   Everyone is Paris is nuts, according to "Tomorrow's Another Day." The Jeanne Labrune "fantasy" is a roundelay of amusingly neurotic characters, all somehow connected to a middle-aged psychoanalyst named Xavier (Jean-Pierre Darrousin) who moonlights as a chiropractor. His chain-smoking wife Sophie (Nathalie Baye), meanwhile, frets about the deteriorating wooden furniture stored in their basement. This concern about damage from humidity--the comedy's central obsession--is started by the loony Elisabeth (Jeanne Alibar), in a renovation frenzy that drives everyone else berserk. She befriends Eva (vintage French actress Danielle Darrieux), who seems less zany than the others. Xavier's pal Franck (Didier Balzace) is a wacky interior decorator who has imported paneling for a client that arrives wet and rotting. "Our whole civilization is leaking," he laments, and that is clearly the message in the madness of this Eric-Rohmer-on-speed frolic.    Starring Nathalie Baye, Jean-Pierre Darroussin, Jeanne Balibar, Isabelle Carre, Didier Bezace, Sophie Guillemin and Danielle Darrieux. Directed and written by Jeanne Labrune. Produced by Nicole Bechet, Jean-Luc Denechau, Christine Gozlan and Alain Sarde. No distributor set. Comedy. French-language; subtitled. Not yet rated.
