Double Bill: PLANES, TRAINS, AND AUTOMOBILES and LE DÎNER DES CONS

Two films from the modern world’s two initial republics; each is about a trim, urbane, well-dressed, successful businessman with a satisfying home life who encounters a bumbling, hefty, less attractive, unsophisticated lower class worker with a heart of gold and no one to call his own, whom he cannot get rid of and who ultimately, after many hijinks and antics, changes his life and perspective around for the better. Each features an automobile accident; each focuses on big, funny laughs and then hit you in the heart, at the end of the very last scene, when the successful businessman warmly welcomes the good-hearted bumbler fully into his life.
