Three old chums who are number ones in the business of practical jokes decide to leave their village from Vendée in France in order to go and live in a old people's nursing home. Pested off and unable to stand their jokes any more, the villagers are more than happy to see them leaving off.

I saw this on French TV about a year ago - a great ensemble performance by 3 of the best (though aged) French actors hamming it up - kind of the outcasts of their little town due to general crochetiness (especially a destructive rampage by Gabin at a dance hall).
