While he is trying to escape from a hit man, Carl (Hardy Krüger) is setting up a kidnapping in Beirut. He gets lost on his way, falling in love with Salène, a.k.a. "La grande sauterelle" (Mireille Darc).
On a beach in Nice, François meets the mysterious Peggy and falls in love with her. Following her to a villa, he meets Marc, a lawyer who has a strange relationship with the girl. Marc tells François that Peggy is a drug addict: she kills men who approach her.
For Georges Lautner who could do much better movies ("Le Septième Juré" "La Route De Salina" "La Maison Assassinée" ),it's just a job that pays the rent.But when you have a good cast at your disposal (Ventura,Mireille Darc,Michel Constantin) and when Audiard is at hand to write some good lines,the result is a good little entertaining comedy.
Antoine is a gangster who is retired.But his pals call him to their rescue.The story ends in a farm where the farmer's wife (Darc) seems to prefer our bandit to her less-than-handsome hubby (Jean Lefèvre).Good use of the wide screen and a good score add to the pleasure.In a nutshell,food for thought,it is not,but anyway who in France at the time was looking to Lautner for new horizons in cinema,but ,hell.He's really pretty good after all.
