Storyline

The sleepy little village of Loubressac is well on its way to becoming a ghost town. To save the town, the local citizenry hatch a plan to attract tourists. To their horror, the plan misfires when a group of hippies are the first to move in. The hippies' free and unconventional ways quickly upset the staid lives of the locals. Then one of the locals is found murdered, and suspicion inevitably falls on the newcomers. Eventually, the locals and the hippies join forces to solve the mystery, and in the course of their adventures learn to respect each others' ways. Written by The Belgian Bear

An interesting take on the 70's France.
17 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

Georges Lautner, famous French director of classic comedies such as "Les tontons flingueurs", "Les barbouzes" or latter, more serious work like Jean-Paul Belmondo dark actioner "Le professionnel" blends laughs, gunshots and pot-smoking hippies into a decent, sometimes even hilarious comedy where French rednecks and free-loving, bare-chested youngsters learn to go beyond their mutual dislike and live in harmony in a deserted village. But some mysterious events raise the awareness of the local police force and murder, gunfights and T&A ensue.

Some of the funny parts are a bit dated, but it's still both an enjoyable comedy with somewhat visionary scenes (like an hilarious criticism of placement product) and Lautner's direction is pretty solid, even 30+ years later. The acting is solid too, with many familiar faces (the late Paul Preboist as well as Andre Pousse, Henri Guybet and the great Michel Galabru) for those who know 70's French cinema... Oh, and did I mention many semi-nude scenes with gorgeous hippie girls? Not a masterpiece, not an exploitation flick either, but an enjoyable movie nonetheless.
