Storyline

A shy young man, Edmond, marries Paulette, the daughter of his employer, Jules Papillot. The bride is beautiful and the prospects are good. But there is a little hitch: the young husband is unable to fulfill his conjugal duties. All this because of a customs officer who had the really bad idea to ask him "Anything to declare" at the precise instant when, on the train, he was about to embrace Paulette. Papillot, alarmed by the situation, decides to help his son-in-law : psychiatrists, loose women to awaken his libido again, anything goes. Luckily - although following plenty of ups and downs - all is well that ends well. Written by Guy Bellinger

See it for Raimu...
20 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

The story is quiet boring for a long while, in fact especially the dialogs,

even if the "psychoanalysis" topic was ahead of its time...

Most is silly and stupid, but not everything is bad...

Some scenes are funny, Raimu is equal to himself,

but I wouldn't say there are many hilarious moments.

There are some, but I was expecting much better !

For me, the law of the series is on :

I watched yesterday "La fine combine" (1931) with

Fernandel (5,6 on IMDb), and it was the same kind of weak comedy...

But this one is still much better...

So, quoting other commentators, on a rainy afternoon...

there are many worst ways to spend your time !

Anyway, compared to most last twenty years comedies,

this one is surprisingly still on the upper range...

I give a 6,0, but Raimu alone could get 9

NB for some "huge" commentator, it's seems easier not to give a rate, aside their comments.. (and therefore having the risk to get negative disapproval answers ?! I wonder...)

I agree that the rating system is not perfect at all (could it be ? impossible !) but showing a rate gives an indication on how much one enjoyed the movie... (isn't it like that ?) Otherwise there wouldn't be any rating system !
