This is a rather obscure movie of De Funes even in France in spite of it is one of his best.
What makes the difference is not the comedy because he is as funny as ever but his compassionate side that we don't see very often. This wasn't a surprise because in interviews, you can see that he was a formidable gentleman even having tremendous success. But, there are only a few movies in which he shows his kindness.
Here, it begins with the relation that he shares with his real son in life, Olivier. They are nearly the only men in the movie and they are great together. As a father, De Funes is very attentive and caring. And for sure, the scenes he had with the babies are moving: he is totally sweet!
In addition, the movie is an explosion of colors and it is an amazing collection of how the 70's, the flower power had impacted on France. Except maybe in "Dick Tracy", I haven't seen so much orange, yellow, red, black, blue
At last, the movie offers a great trip in romantic place: Montecarlo, Roma
For a movie which is a musical comedy, with dance, songs, music, ballets, I am totally appreciative! Bidibidi-BA!
