A super casting!
2 February 2007 | by (French Southern Territories) – See all my reviews

Summary express: Jean Brevent still did not understand the departure of his wife, Danielle Darieux, here five years, during which, it could not forget it. In spite of a work of writer originator in a newspaper, in which it tried to be invested completely, time did not make its work. One day, by chance, he meets her in the bus...

To try to reconquer her, he wants to dazzle her by replacing his owner, the President of Publi-Paris, a company of publicity.

In the same time, to meet again his ex-wife, Danielle Darieux, he proposes the divorce to her!

A super french casting of the fifties! With Bourvil (Jean Brevent), his ex-wife, Danielle Darieux and Roger Hannin (his rival), Jean-Paul Belmondo (his gender) and Jean-Paul Lefebvre as his chauffeur.
