I laughed so hard I cried.
24 July 2000 | by (Salem, Oregon) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in the 70's as part of my French class field trip and "cultural experience". It was hilarious, I laughed until I cried. I've remembered it all these years and would love to see it again. I recommend it as Pierre Richard makes excellent use of props, especially chairs, to put the audience into hysterics.
