the movie is 1973, but is about a very actual problem : Lodging and working in Paris, and maintaining of a couple life. Everyone in France knows this is impossible, and this movie show why and how things happen. Jacques Higelin is good as an actor (Well... He is better as a singer) and Marthe Keller is perfect as the main character. I saw this movie years ago, when I was young, living and working in Paris, and trying to find a flat to dwell with my wife and newborn son... Now I'm old, far from Paris and I laugh as all is true and very acurate. Seems to be My own history. I can't but give this one a very high rating. The best in this movie is the portrait gallery of the secondary characters, the peddler, the dentist, the girl in the bar, and even the angry Alice Sapritch... All this makes a very watchable movie. There are far more better examples of french comedy, but you should give this one a try. The worst it could do is to waste 1:30 hour of your time, the same the character in the movie spend in the transports every morning
