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. But the three old men, soon enough, feeling bored of the nursing home, make up their mind to come back and settle down in the village. Written by Paulo Ramirez

a very funny farce
8 December 1998 | by (Montreal Canada) – See all my reviews

More like an inside joke for French audience, this movie would have limited appeal to a North American audience.
