Daughter and stepmother.
6 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

The third installment in the Gendarme series.Cruchot is a widower and he falls in love with a wealthy widow ,Josepha (Claude Gensac).But his daughter is not prepared to accept it and she first refuses this new "mother" .But do not panic,things will turn out fine,under Saint Tropez's luminous blue sky.

The regular guests are all here .Cruchot's superior (Michel Galabru)is making it rough all over.Cruchot's colleagues are all present too.And let's not forget the inevitable Deux-Chevaux of the nun who appears in every episode of the saga. Sandra Bullock in "speed" a quarter of century before it happened.
