Fernandel gives a memorably hilarious performance as a policemen in a French/Italian border town. The border line happens to go right through the middle of the house, where the protagonist was born. The complications arise, when he suddenly finds out that he was actually born on the Italian side and, therefore, is legally Italian. If you like French comedies and Fernandel, this one is a must.
