An underestimated classic !
6 August 2003 | by (La Rochelle, France) – See all my reviews

I wonder why Pierre Richard is so under estimated here in France ? This film, and also "les malheurs d'alfred", are among the ten best french comedies of the last three decades. Despite his 70's look, the movie is still so fresh and actual. Pierre Richard is somewhere between Jacques Tati and Jim Carrey. The soundtrack is also a classic. DAVID, La Rochelle, France
