An absolutely hilarious British comedy starring the highly talented Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. Moore plays a depressed man confronted by the devil and he eventually signs his soul over to him in return for seven wishes. Moore is very lonely and all he really wants in life is to be with his sweetheart, Margaret. So most of his wishes are related to that, but Cook can always finds a way to louse them up. It's an update of the "Faust" legend, but it hasn't ever been done with so much wit and style. It surely hits the spot for all comedy lovers out there! A recommended picture.
