This movie is a mixture between gangster movie and comedy. Georges Lautner created a typical french comedy with quite a good portion of violence, drugs, sex and sarcasm.
Michel Constantin plays Campana, a commissar at the drugs bureau of Paris police. He gets an undercover job in Nice to catch an Italian-french mafia boss. As he slips into the identity of a gangster's brother, who was already killed, he has to play the role of a loving husband with child - something that is not so easy for a confirmed single like Campana. Unfortunately American killers chase behind the Nice mafia clan too, in order to get control of french drug trades to USA.
Constantin played Campana very cool, a silent hero that struggles against the police in Nice, the Nice mafia clan, the American killers and American police from the Bureau against Narcotics and dangerous Drugs (BND). There are a lot of sarcastic elements that bases on the French - American "friendship" - very funny for all Europeans.
All in all a great movie to have fun and a good time. Set in scene perfectly by Lautner.
