Les Deux Timides begins with a courtroom scene, which is a bravura example of silent film technique. A bumbling young lawyer is defending a client, who is accused of beating his wife. As he describes his version of what happened, it plays out on the screen in all its ridiculous, convoluted glory, with escalating hilarity. The lawyer and his brutish client later become rivals for the hand of a shy young lady.

DVD-R has French intertitles with hard-encoded German subtitles (underneath) and switchable English subtitles. Approx. 86 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
