Storyline

Edouard Berlon (Jean-Pierre Cassel) is a happy-go-lucky rogue who takes nothing seriously and flits irresponisbly from one affair to another. When he meets Helene Larouch (Anouk Aimee), he woos her although she is married to Andre (Francois Maistre), until finally the combination of his youth, exuberance, absurd family (including a few infants of undetermined origin and a number of stray dogs)and eccentric way of life compared to the aridity of her marriage, overcome her resistance. They are both soon disenchanted. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Don't you think the joker laughs at you!
5 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

...and however the first scene promised great things:the first line is "Ciel mon Mari" (= good heavens ,my hubby!) a line we often find in the FRench "Theatre de Boulevard" .A lover (Cassel) is escaping from his lover's bedroom on the roofs of Paris,near la Tour Eiffel,when the husband his cursing him! But what follows is downright boring.Cassel's family and their lifestyles are a real turnoff:uncle Theodose(sic),sister Pilou and brother Guillaume are really the pain in the neck.Not to mention his natural sons.Cassel is cast as "the joker" (check the title)but he is a heavy one .Anouk Aimée is totally wasted as his -at last- true love !"you must have had thirty women before me" is supposed to be a funny line.

The joke is on the viewer.
