Storyline

While their parents are busy shopping in a department store, Tiennot, who would rather chase girls, buys the complicity of Bébert, his little brother. In the train on the way back home, Tiennot, infuriated by his whims, leaves Bébert in the last car, which happens to be separated from the train and headed in another direction. Panic in the family: where on earth is Bébert? In fact, the little rascal has been taken in by the station master of Verneuil L'Etang, where he has a great time wreaking havoc in the SNCF network. A good-natured inspector is called on the spot and Bébert is finally reunited with his family. Written by Guy Bellinger

Petit Gibus
29 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

The (deserved)huge success of Yves Robert's "La guerre des boutons" was the main reason for which this film was made.It was obviously written by the same scenarist to capitalize on wiz kid Martin Lartigue aka "Petit Gibus"'s success ,cause he was the stand out of Robert's previous movie.But the boy's spontaneity has disappeared here.He's showing off all along the movie.

It is a the story of a brat who gets lost on the French trains (Bebert and the local train).It is sometimes funny but the young lead is infuriating.Cast includes Jacques Higelin (later a famous French singer),Jean Richard (who was featured in "la Guerre des Boutons" ,but as Lebrac's father) ,Michel Serrault and Yves Robert himself.

Get "La Guerre des Boutons" instead.
