Storyline

Léon Ménard, the village verger, is a decent young man whose hobby is to play the accordion. One day he is fired for having accompanied Mary Pinson, a singer deemed scandalous by the right-minded parishioners. Blinded by his love for Mary, Léon follows her to Paris where he becomes her plaything. With Mary's complicity, a gang of swindlers make him the puppet proprietor of a night club. But Léon can't live in a fool's paradise forever and soon finds himself on the street, forsaken and desperate. Luckily, the manager of a circus notices him while he is busking and he hires Léon at once. Not only will success come to him but he will win the love of sweet Solange. Written by Guy Bellinger

A funny little vehicle for Bourvil.
19 March 1999 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

Of course, this is not the best comedy ever made but it's mighty enjoyable as it always is when Bourvil is around. I guess the best part is Etienne Lorin's song which is supposed to be sung "in English". If you like the French accent, don't miss it!
