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

What the squares thought the sixties were about , particularly the hippies -who in 1973 were already passé- The film fills his quota of long hair,sitar,transcendental meditation and singing Om ...But the villains are not them and a nice countess (played by veteran Renée Saint-Cyr) is on their side when her steward is murdered .Also notable for one of Miou-Miou's first appearances and the presence of Dani ,a pop singer of the sixties whose career was short-lived (but who made a comeback some years back).The film is never dull and is pleasant to watch ,if you do not ask too much.
That said ,as far as Lautner is concerned,you'll be better off with "Le Septième Juré" "La Route De Salina" or "La Maison Assassinée" which are not representative of his commercial stuff ,but which are infinitely more absorbing.
