Vittorio De Sica,
Jean Boyer 's only claim to fame was "circonstances atténuantes"(1939)."Le trou normand " retains an obsolete charm ,thanks to the perfect cast:Bourvil,Jane Marken,Noel Roquevert,Brigitte Bardot,Jeanne Fusier-Gir. Village idiot inherits an inn but there's one condition :he 's got to go back to school and pass an exam!His auntie,who covets the heritage,puts a wrench in the works."Le trou normand" is the name of the valuable property.In Normandy,the "trou normand" is the little glass of calvados you sip in the middle of a gargantuan meal,to make a hole (=trou) in your stomach and to be able to carry on putting away.
This is a computer-colorized version .Brigitte Bardot's fans,you will be disappointed:she's a brunette here!
