Storyline

Seven pals decide to take a few days'holidays to free up the time necessary to pull three enormous pranks. Their aim is to ridicule three established bodies: the army, the church and the administration. Quite arbitrarily, they set their hearts on two peaceful sub-prefectures, Ambert and Issoire. Broudier, disguised as a government minister, turns up at the barracks, demands and obtains the organization of night maneuvers. The following day, Bénin, dressed up as a reverend, preaches in the cathedral of Issoire a sermon against the precepts of the Church. As for Lesueur, he disturbs the inauguration of the statue of Vercingétorix by an MP. But the holidays are over. The seven of them can'r part without a last joke... Written by Guy Bellinger

Seven
10 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

Based on a Jules Romains novel,and featuring Georges Brassens' famous song "Les Copains D'Aboard" ,"Les Copains" shows,perhaps more than his other works ,that Yves Robert was an auteur.His heroes are all big children who do not want to grow up ,who want to stay the way they were as children (hence his childhood nostalgia we feel in " La Guerre Des Boutons" and his two magic movies "La Gloire De Mon Père" and "Le Château De Ma Mère").

Seven pals declare war to stupidity,hypocrisy,bourgeoisie conformism and their mainstays: the Army and the Church;they are not real rebels ,and their rebellion looks more like schoolboy pranks than a serious political attitude.For instance,one of them disguises himself as a priest to praise....the sex virtues.

It's a black and white movie,but there's a good use of color for one scene .
