This is one of my personal favorites of Belmondo movies. Maybe because it's a little strange one. Especially the plot which goes from one place to another without much progress, characters pop in and pop out... Some characters you think are very important lost in the middle and you don't see them no more.
There's not too much action like in "Men" titles of those times (From Rio and From Hong Kong), but there is more fun! Especially the first half is excellent. Full of gags, lies, pretends and embarrassments. As the main character goes to world-round trip, the plot is little slowing, but still Belmondo doesn't let you bore.
And there is one more thing I like about this movie: the colours. They are very warm and rich, just in the sixties style. Throughout. In apartments, in Paris, on the boat. Very sunny movie!
